Go Skegness

Go Skegness is a highways and transportation improvement project. The project is designed to support the East Coast economy and encourage growth by working to alleviate town centre congestion, in addition to developing more opportunities for visitors and residents to use sustainable methods of transport, like buses and cycling.

The programme of work includes:

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

The works to the bus lane and cycle path along the A52 are being carried out by North Midland Construction, with the remainder of the works carried out by Kier Group. The majority of the work will be undertaken during winter months to minimise disruption, although some notable exceptions includes works being carried out outside of schools or on a less critical section of highway.

The project is being led by Lincolnshire County Council with support from the Greater Lincolnshire LEP and follows other transport improvements to the area, including enhancements to the rail station forecourt and additional carriages to Skegness by East Midlands Trains during the peak holiday season.

Aims and benefits

  • Support the growth of the East Coast visitor economy and encouraging new business
  • Alleviate town-centre congestion
  • Encourage healthy and active lifestyles through the promotion of cycling and walking
  • Develop opportunities for visitors and residents to use sustainable methods of transport such as buses and cycling
  • Create a more reliable, effective and efficient highways and public transport network
  • Create new jobs during the construction phase and beyond

Cost and funding

The wide-ranging improvement project will cost £5.7 million to complete, with £4m coming from funding from the Greater Lincolnshire LEP Growth Deal and the remaining £1.7m coming from Lincolnshire County Council.
