Wragby Road Improvements

The Wragby Road / Wolsey Way improvement scheme will see longer lanes created along Outer Circle Road on the approach to Wragby Road. In addition, the Wragby Road carriageway between Wolsey Way and Outer Circle Road will be widened slightly to accommodate four lanes, two westbound and two eastbound.

In its current state, queues on Outer Circle Road can sometimes stretch down past Greetwell Road during peak times. The idea of this scheme is to widen the carriageway in areas to improve traffic flow for road users travelling from Wolsey Way, Outer Circle Road and Carlton Boulevard towards Wragby Road.

Aims and Benefits

  • Reduce congestion on Wragby Road, Wolsey Way, Outer Circle Road and Carlton Boulevard
  • Improve journey times and reliability along the route and in the surrounding area
  • Increase pedestrian safety

Cost and Funding

The Wolsey Way / Wragby Road improvement project will cost £1.8m and is being part-funded using some of the £5.4m allocated to the authority by the Department of Transport (DfT) from its National Productivity Investment Fund. The money was awarded to LCC to help reduce congestion at key locations, upgrade or improve the maintenance of local highway assets, improve access to employment and housing, and develop economic and job creation opportunities.

The remaining funding will come from the county’s resurfacing budget and third-party contributions.
