£200m Lincolnshire ring road bypass approved

North Hykeham Relief Road

The North Hykeham Relief Road is set to connect the A46 Pennells Roundabout to the Lincoln Eastern Bypass, completing a ring-road encircling the city. Balfour Beatty is poised to handle the design and construction of this crucial link, with an estimated delivery time of around three years. Reports Construction Journal.

Cllr Richard Davies, executive member for highways, expressed his delight, stating, “I’m thrilled to announce that the North Hykeham Relief Road has received planning approval, marking significant progress toward the realization of a complete ring road around Lincoln.

“Now that planning consent’s been granted, our team can formally enter into negotiations with landowners while continuing to prep all of the legal orders needed before construction can start. These include compulsory purchase orders granting powers to obtain the land needed for the road and side roads orders granting powers to improve or alter the highway.

“Our current plan is to present these to Highways and Transport Scrutiny Committee in June and then the Executive in July, before making them live for public consultation. The focus will then be preparing a full business case for DfT before making a start on building the road late next year.
