The A15 Lincoln Eastern Bypass is a 7.5km road designed to improve Lincoln’s infrastructure, encourage growth, minimise traffic congestion and enhance the inter-city environment.
Works started on-site on 6 December 2016 when Network Rail began construction of a new railway bridge adjacent to Washingborough Road, which will allow the new road to run under the railway.
When complete, the bypass will start at a new roundabout on the A15 Sleaford Road and finish at the A158 Wragby Road, connecting with the existing northern relief road and becoming the next step towards creating a complete ring road around the city.
The project is backed by Lincolnshire County Council, the Department for Transport, and the three district authorities (City of Lincoln Council, West Lindsey and North Kesteven District Councils).
The 600-tonne rail bridge deck was slid into place over the weekend during a 72-hour rail line closure.
