Access LN6 is a 3-year programme funded by Lincolnshire County Council and the Local Sustainable Transport Fund (LSTF).
A Department for Transport Grant has been awarded to the LN6 postal area within Lincoln which includes Teal Park. The Grant is awarded to schemes which stimulate economic growth and reduce carbon emissions by encouraging smarter travel choices.
The £6.5 million programme aims to improve sustainable transport options in the immediate area.
Sam Elkington, Senior Partner of Hodgson Elkington, Sole Agents for Teal Park commented: “We have already seen the new, improved public transport service to Teal Park now that the first occupier in Siemens is in occupation and trading on the development.
“This service already appears to very well used. Whilst seemingly only a small increase in provision for the area, it continues to show the attractiveness of the LN6 area and Teal Park in particular.”
Robin Taylor, Director of Taylor Lindsey the owners and developers of Teal Park, said “Obviously this can only continue to improve what is already an extremely appealing area for business and we are now in detailed negotiations with a number of potential occupiers for the site, and are confident that these will lead to further businesses relocating to the development.”
The main objectives for Access LN6 are the reduction in car use and journey times, increase in cycle trips, rail patronage as well as a reduction in carbon emissions.
Teal Park, the 87 acre Employment Park, situated south-west of the City of Lincoln and fronting the A46, saw the City’s largest single employer, Siemens, relocate from the City centre to the site earlier this year.
