Eastern Bypass

The Lincoln Eastern Bypass, backed by Lincolnshire County Council, Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership and the three District Authorities (Lincoln City, West Lindsey and North Kesteven), provides the opportunity to improve Lincoln’s infrastructure and encourage growth.

The scheme aims to meet key County Council objectives including minimising traffic congestion, supporting Lincoln’s growth as a principal urban centre, and enhancing the inter-city environment.

As a result of receiving £50M funding from Central Government in 2011, a planning application for a single carriageway was submitted in December 2012 and was granted in June 2013.


The bypass will serve as a step towards the completion of an eventual ring road around Lincoln, connecting the existing western and northern relief roads to the anticipated southern bypass.
