The Wragby Road improvement project has been ongoing for a number of months as part of a mission to reduce congestion in uphill Lincoln.

It is being funded using part of the £5.4 million allocated to Lincolnshire County Council by the Department for Transport from its National Productivity Investment Fund.

Cllr Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said previously: “The utility diversions associated with this project have proved to be more extensive than the utility companies originally suggested. This is largely due to previously unknown underground cables and equipment being discovered during excavations, which the plans provided to us by the utility companies didn’t identify.

“This, as well as carrying out some additional drainage, surfacing and kerbing improvements to further improve the highway network, has caused some minor delays to the project.

“We’re now expecting the entire project to be complete in August.”
