Community Crossings Initiative

The Community Crossings Initiative will see twelve new pedestrian crossings built throughout Lincolnshire.

The locations for the new or improved pedestrian crossing facilities are:  

  • Newbridge Hill in Louth
  • B1174 High Street in Great Gonerby
  • A16 Main Road in Stickney
  • A52 Swineshead Road in Boston (downtown near Alban Retail Park)
  • A52 Barrowby Road in Grantham (south of Poplar Farm)
  • A52 Barrowby Road in Grantham (near Greenhill Road)
  • A15 in Thurlby (south of High Street)
  • Lincoln Road in Skellingthorpe
  • A1500 Tillbridge Lane in Sturton by Stow (adjacent to B1241)
  • High Street in Blyton (near the primary school)
  • B1397 London Road in Wyberton
  • Spalding Road in Holbeach

As part of the early planning for the initiative, local members were asked to submit for consideration crossing locations within their divisions. These projects were then sifted, ahead of carrying out feasibility and buildability studies for the shortlisted projects.

Aims and benefits

  • increase safety
  • make it easier for people to get around by foot
  • improve the lives of residents in the communities crossings are being built

Cost and funding

The initiative will cost £3.8 million in total, with £1.5 million earmarked by Executive in 2023 and the remaining coming from a combination of additional county council funding and developer contributions.
