Holbeach Peppermint Junction

Proposed improvements to Peppermint Junction in Holbeach will see the current junction replaced with a roundabout connecting the A17 to the A151. A second roundabout will provide access to housing and commercial development land.

Peppermint Junction

The current junction has been the site of 22 collisions resulting in injury in the past ten years. At present some drivers chose to bypass the junction, travelling through the centre of Holbeach to access the A17, reducing opportunities for growth in the town.

The scheme also includes pedestrian and cycle routes whilst vehicular access between Northon’s Lane and the A151 will be closed preventing the route becoming a rat-run.

Having considered many options it was decided that an option with two roundabouts would provide the most benefits – including:

  • Road safety – reducing the risk of collisions at Peppermint Junction
  • Diverted journeys – due to the difficulty turning right at the current junction, many drivers travel through the centre to access the A17. A roundabout would make the right turn safer, easier and faster
  • Housing growth – providing safe, convenient access to up to 900 new homes to the east of the A151
  • Employment growth – providing safe, convenient access for up to 20 hectares of employment land west of the A151. This area is likely to take the form of a Food Enterprise Zone.

Consultation on these plans took place in 2015. The responses were used to influence the final design before a planning application was submitted in November 2015. This application was approved and planning permission granted in March 2016. The decision notice is available below.

The Peppermint Junction highway scheme is expected to cost in the region of £5.4m. A provisional £2.4m has been secured from the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Growth Fund, with the remaining to come from developers and the county council. The scheme is currently being procured through the Lincolnshire Highways Select Tender List and is due to commence on site during May 2017.

Along with the construction of the new roundabout at Peppermint Junction, there is also a further opportunity to improve traffic flows and pedestrian access at the adjacent Boston Road roundabout. It is expected that this work will take place at the same time.

South Lincolnshire Food Enterprise Zone

The highways scheme is due to release land for the proposed Food Enterprise Zone.

Holbeach West residential development

The highways scheme is also due to release land for the proposed Holbeach West housing development. Further information can be found on the Holbeach West website.
