Whisby Road improvement scheme update

The scheme to improve the remainder of Whisby Road between Doddington Road and Teal Park is now well underway.

The works started on 7th October 2013 and Lincolnshire County Council estimate that construction will take 12 months from the initial start date.

The improvement works run from the North Eastern corner of Teal Park, along Whisby Road, up to Doddington Road and also incorporate improvements to Station Road.

Whisby Road is being widened to current standards and a new combined footway/cycleway is being laid either to both sides of Whisby Road. One of the main benefits will be a dedicated direct footpath and cycleway linking Teal Park into Lincoln and North Hykeham.

A new roundabout will replace the junction between Whisby Road and Station Road and there will be further improvements to the Doddington Road/Whisby Road junction.

Low-energy lighting is also being installed along the full length of Whisby Road and there will be two new toucan crossings (for pedestrians and cyclists) – one on Whisby Road and one on Station Road.

Finally, upgrades are also being made to signals and crossings at the junction between Whisby Road and Doddington Road including a new traffic light system that aims to reduce motorists waiting times by up to 20%.

The works are being supported by the Department for Transport fundedAccess LN6 programme to improve sustainable transport options in the area and are expected to be completed by Autumn/Winter 2014.
