Go Skegness

Go Skegness aims to support the East Coast economy and encourage growth by undertaking measures to alleviate congestion and develop opportunities for visitors and residents to use sustainable methods of transport such as buses and cycling.

Improvements to bus stops will be undertaken

The wide-ranging £5.7million project seeks to benefit both visitors and residents by creating a more effective and efficient highways and public transport network as well as encouraging healthy and active lifestyles through the promotion of cycling and walking.

It will support the growth of the local visitor economy encouraging new business, create jobs through the construction phase and beyond and attracting visitors to the area long term. It follows transport improvements such as enhancements to the rail station forecourt and additional carriages to Skegness by East Midlands Trains during the peak holiday season.

The programme of work includes:

  • Improvements to the A52 Roman Bank to remove congestion, improve bus priority and create improved facilities for walking and cycling;
  • Improvements within Skegness Town Centre and the surrounding area to cycle paths, footpaths and links from key visitor destinations to the bus and rail station;
  • Enhanced Skegness to Gibraltar Point footpath and cycle path;
  • Improved public transport facilities;
  • Improved information and signs for visitors.

The project will be led by Lincolnshire County Council with support and £4m of funding from the Greater Lincolnshire LEP Growth Deal. It would be split into two phases and work carried out during winter months wherever possible to minimise disruption.

Phase 1 works planned for 2016-17 include:

  • Bus lane extension on the A52 to link the two existing sections
  • Butlins to Skegness footpath and cycle patch
  • Two enhanced bus stops on Lumley Road, Skegness
  • Extension to bus layby on Roman Bank near Sea Lane junction, Ingoldmells
  • Gibraltar Point footpath and cycle path improvements

A drop-in information session took place at The Store House in Skegness on April 21, 2016, where people could find out more information on this important project.
