Motorists in Lincolnshire will be will be able to use the new East-West Link Road for the first time on Monday 15 August, it has been announced.
The £22m road provides a direct link from the High Street (at its junction with Tentercroft Street) to Pelham Bridge and Canwick Road, meaning traffic can bypass the city centre level crossings.
Although motorists will be able to use the new route from Monday, temporary traffic lights will be in place at the junctions as work continues to install permanent ones.
The council says the temporary lights will ensure the road is safe, but are not as efficient as permanent signals, so motorists are still advised to take alternative routes where possible.
They will also be carrying out landscaping works and tree-planting over the coming weeks, with everything due to completed for an official opening in November.
"This project, alongside the upcoming eastern bypass, will significantly ease the pressures we see on the road network in and around Lincoln every day. "The finished road will provide an easier route across the city, avoiding the High Street railway line. It's also expected to cut traffic congestion, improve air quality and reduce journey times."
“I campaigned for, and helped to secure, the funding for this £22m project and am really pleased we are so near to its completion.
“Everyone who lives, works, shops or travels around, across and through our lovely City will benefit from the new East-West link.
“This road will make the lives of all of us in Lincoln and Lincolnshire easier.”
