What’s the solution to Lincoln’s traffic issues?

Drop-in events will be held

People will get the chance to help shape the future of travel and transport in and around Lincoln over the next two decades as the county council hosts six Lincoln Transport Strategy drop-in sessions starting this week.

People will be able to ask questions and share their experiences, visions and ideas for improving Lincoln’s transport network at the following events:

  • Ruddocks, Lincoln High Street – Tuesday, January 22, 10am-6pm
  • Bentley Hotel in North Hykeham – Wednesday, January 23, 2pm-8pm
  • Waterside Shopping Centre, Lincoln – Friday, January 25, 9am-5.30pm
  • Ruddocks – Saturday, January 26, 10am-6pm
  • Welton Village Hall, Ryland Road – Monday, February 25, 3pm-8pm
  • Waddington Community Hub, Waddington High Street – Wednesday, February 27, 3pm-8pm

For anyone unable to attend the events, the Lincoln Transport Strategy questionnaire can be completed here between Monday, January 21 and Friday, March 1.

Drivers in Lincoln have already, and continue to be, affected by road closures due to various works including the delayed Lincoln Eastern Bypass project, which will cost £120 million. However, this project recently faced further delays after one of its subcontractors has collapsed into administration

Executive Member for Highways, Councillor Richard Davies, said: “People aren’t shy about telling me what’s wrong with Lincoln’s roads, so this is the perfect opportunity to share your ideas on how to make getting from Point A to Point B quicker and easier for you and others.

“During the events, we want as many people as possible to complete our questionnaire about their experiences traveling around the city and expectations for the next twenty years.

“We’ll then use this information to create a new transport strategy for Lincoln that will include a number of proposals for improving accessibility and transport now and in the future.”
