New Tentercroft Street car park entrance as East West Link takes form

This story is over

It’s full steam ahead for the construction of a new £22 million road linking the east and west of the city, and the latest phase of work will see continued building demolition, extended traffic lights and changes for Tentercroft Street car park.

In the last week, Lincolnshire County Council has completed the demolition of the former Regency Club, and new curbing and tarmac has been laid along Tentercroft Street.

The new section of road forms the entrance to Tentercroft Street car park, which will be opened this week.

The county council said: “Access to Tentercroft Street car park will be switched from the existing entrance over to the newly built access 30m further east along Tentercroft Street. The temporary traffic lights on Cross Street will be extended around the Portland Street junction.”

Some 43 pieces of land come together to form the project plans and 18 businesses and property owners have been affected by the works – some relocating.

The work began in November 2014, and is expected to reach completion by the end of 2016.
