North Hykeham ‘path to nowhere’ gets streetlights

This story is over

A year after Persimmon Homes promised immediate progress on a “a road to nowhere” in North Hykeham, the path is still going… nowhere — but it now has streetlights.

The foot and cycle path was meant to connect St. Aiden’s Park to Hykeham Station, but it suddenly ends and residents are forced to walk in the mud.

The pathway was laid on the old George Fischer Casting football pitch, near Hykeham Station, running along the train track before taking a 90 degree bend, where it suddenly stops.

The muddy end of the walk people have to use to cross.

Resident Lee Baxter contacted The Lincolnite to share his confusion last year when he realised the pathway was unfinished.

The resident has continued to keep a close eye on the progress and has contacted us again.

Today, the path still leads nowhere but streetlights have been installed.

Last year, The Lincolnite contacted the developers Persimmon Homes, which owns two sites in the area.

Simon Usher, deputy managing director at Persimmon Homes Yorkshire, said last year: “There has been a suspension on completion as we procure additional design work but work should recommence imminently.”

However, the developers had no statement to offer The Lincolnite when we contacted them on Tuesday.
