A £3 million project to build a new junction on the Canwick Road in Lincoln has been completed.
Eurovia Contracting worked on the scheme for five months and it was officially opened earlier this month.
The Eurovia Contracting site team, Lincolnshire County Council representatives and special guests met at the Canwick Road junction with South Park Avenue to cut the ribbon and announce the completion of the works.
The new junction will ease congestion by introducing wider lanes along Canwick Road and on the approaches to the South Park Avenue junction, dedicated turning lanes and improved junction layouts. The roadworks are now complete although some further works on footways are still ongoing, including some single lane closures.
Richard Davies, executive member for highways and transportation at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “People are anecdotally saying how much better it is to get in and out of Lincoln at key times. There’s also been a lot of flood prevention work and improvements on a number of levels.”
