Lincoln Eastern Bypass - Archaeology

With construction work well underway at the site of the new rail bridge west of Washingborough Road, archaeological works started during September 2016 and are still being carried out in the same areas by Lincoln firm Network Archaeology.

Protection and enhancement of the cultural heritage of Lincolnshire is an important part of the project, and there are planning conditions that have to be implemented to ensure that any archaeological remains affected by the road are excavated and fully recorded if they cannot be avoided or protected.

As well as playing an important role in making the road network of Lincolnshire fit for the twenty-first century, the archaeological scheme is providing an exciting opportunity to look back and learn about the history of this part of the city and county.

Bringing in the archaeologists early also means that, even with the substantial archaeological findings being made, this work will not cause any delays to the road construction programme.
