Lincolnshire County Council has awarded the third and final phase of Grantham relief road to Galliford Try. The project works will start in April 2021 with a £48m worth to the contractor. This of course follows on from phase two which is expected to be complete later this year.
A52 at Somerby Hill will connect to the B1174 in the final phase of the Grantham relief road, crossing the Witham Valley, River Witham and the East Coast railway line on a new viaduct. When opened, the whole £102m Grantham southern relief road will stretch for 3.5km.
The Grantham bypass will also connect the A52 at Somerby Hill to the A1. Beides, phase one was construction of a roundabout off the B1174 and phase two connects the B1174 with the A1.
The Grantham southern relief road project is being supported by Highways England, Greater Lincolnshire LEP, South Kesteven District Council, Network Rail, the Department for Transport, Homes England and local businesses.
