Holbeach Peppermint Junction

The current improvement works at 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.

The Peppermint Junction improvement scheme will see the current A17 / A151 T-junction replaced with a roundabout connecting the two roads. In addition, a second roundabout that will be built on the A151 south of Peppermint junction to provide access to housing and commercial development land.

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

The improvement scheme will release land for the proposed South Lincolnshire Food Enterprise Zone, as well as for the proposed Holbeach West housing development.

Along with the construction of the new roundabout at Peppermint Junction, there are further enhancement proposed to improve traffic flows and pedestrian crossing facilities at the adjacent Boston Road roundabout on the A17. These works will take place at the same time.

The project is backed by Lincolnshire County Council and supported by South Holland District Council, Greater Lincolnshire LEP and local businesses.

Aims and benefits

  • Increased road safety and reduced risk of collision
  • Alleviate town-centre congestion by making access to the A17 safer, easier and faster than the current junction
  • Encourage housing growth by providing safe, convenient access to up to 900 new homes to the east of the A151
  • Support employment opportunities and the local economy by providing safe, convenient access for up to 20 hectares of employment land west of the A151

Cost and funding

The Peppermint Junction highway scheme will cost in the region of £5.4m with a provisional £2.4m coming from the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Growth Fund and the remaining balance coming from developers and the County Council.

Planning permission and public consultation

Consultation on the scheme took place in 2015, and the responses were used to influence the final design. A planning application was submitted in November 2015, and planning permission was granted in March 2016.
