Canwick Road improvements

The Canwick Road Improvement scheme was made possible thanks to £1.7million of grant funding from the Department for Transport towards the £5m project.

Eurovia Infrastructure Ltd was awarded the contract for this project and started in December 2014. By the end of May 2015 the major works were complete leaving work to the subway and footpath and landscaping on Canwick Hill to carry out throughout June and July 2015.

Improvements to ease congestion included the creation of wider lanes along Canwick Road and on the approaches to the South Park Avenue junction, dedicated turning lanes and improved junction layouts. The overhead gantries were also replaced at the junction and no longer require lane closures to carry out maintenance.

Facilities for pedestrians and cyclists were improved including constructing a combined foot and cycle path on Canwick Hill, a new toucan crossing across the junction at Canwick Road and Washingborough Road and a subway which has been created at the South Park Avenue junction linking the area to Cow Paddle common.

The works aimed to alleviate congestion at what was highlighted as a ‘pinch point’ for traffic travelling through the city – particularly during rush hour.

Executive Member for Highways and Transportation, Councillor Richard Davies, said: “We set ourselves a very tight schedule to complete these works as it was important that the road was fully open for June when some major events took place in the city, including the Lincolnshire Show, the British National Time Trials and the Magna Carta events. This was achieved.

“The improvements eased congestion on this major route through Lincoln as well as having a positive impact on the wider road network, especially during rush hour when traffic is particularly heavy through the centre of the city. During the project we were able to ensure the majority of works requiring road closures were carried out overnight to minimise disruption to motorists and enable the road to remain open during business hours.”
