Wragby Road works complete after delays

The project took over six months

Over six months of work to improve traffic flow and journey times along Wragby Road and Wolsey Way have been completed.

As previously reported, North Midland Construction began the work back in February, but in July the project was extended due to “unexpected utility diversions and additional improvements”.

Footways were widened, new pedestrian crossings were built, new street-light columns were installed and a new southbound bus stop on Outer Circle Road at the Carlton Centre was constructed.

Executive Member for Highways and Transport, Councillor Richard Davies, said: “This was a tricky project because not only did it require a large amount of excavation and reconstruction, but the team also encountered several unknown underground cables and service mains during the works.

“However, by adjusting the works programme, they were able to get these diverted without causing much disruption to the scheme.

“In addition to this scheme, we’re also in the process of carrying out works to improve the drainage and carriageway along Bunkers Hill, just down the road from Wolsey Way.

“I want to thank everyone for remaining patient and bearing with us during both projects. When the work at Bunkers Hill is complete, these two schemes will complement each other by hugely improving this very busy area of Lincoln.”
