New bridges to kick-start Lincoln economic growth
GRAHAM Construction has been appointed by the City of Lincoln Council to design and deliver crucial elements of the Western Growth Corridor development, which is set to transform the city and bring new opportunities for housing and economic growth.
The work includes the design and construction of a new vehicular/cycle/pedestrian bridge over the railway and a pedestrian bridge enhancing safety and connectivity between the site and the existing communities.
The project aims to establish a major access route into the Western Growth Corridor site, enabling the delivery of up to 3,200 new homes as part of a Sustainable Urban Extension to Lincoln.
Subject to design and budget approvals, construction will commence next year, with the first phase of homes expected to be delivered thereafter, pending detailed planning approval.
Councillor Naomi Tweddle, Portfolio Holder for Inclusive Economic Growth at the City of Lincoln Council, said: “Creating routes that are also accessible for both pedestrians and cyclists for the Sustainable Urban Extension is an absolute priority for the development, so we’re thrilled to be able to work on achieving this goal.”
