Final works of A18 road safety improvement scheme complete

Final works to the A18 road safety improvement scheme are now complete, following anti-skid surfacing and carriageway lining.

The project has introduced a number of improvements with the aim to reduce current and future road safety risks on the A18 for all users. These improvements include a new roundabout, carriageway widening, right turn facilities and lower speed limits.

In 2018, the North East Lincolnshire Council (NELC) and EQUANS regeneration partnership secured £2.8m joint funding with Lincolnshire County Council from the Department for Transport’s Safer Roads Fund. 

There were four phases to the project:

Phase one of the works began on site in January 2020 and focused on the road between the A18/A46 junction and Laceby Manor Golf Club. The carriageway was widened, while right-turn lanes were introduced at both Oaklands Hotel and Laceby Manor Golf Club. In addition, vehicle safety barriers were installed together with carriageway resurfacing and lining.

Phase two saw carriageway resurfacing work to a section of the A18 known as Waterdell between the Waltham Road and Ashby Hill junction.

Phase three involved the installation of a right-turn lane to Utterby from Barton Street, within Lincolnshire County Council’s boundary at the Barton Street and Lincoln Gate junction.

Phase four began in September 2021 with the construction of a roundabout on the A18 Waltham Road junction, which has replaced the previous T junction. These works were substantially completed in December and the road was reopened.

Additional safety measures have also been introduced as follows:

  • A speed limit reduction to 40mph on both carriageways of the A18 Barton Street as motorists approach the new roundabout
  • At the same time, to bring into force a reduction in the speed limit into Barnoldby le Beck village from the A18, from 50mph to 40mph
  • The speed limit will extend along the A18 south of the new roundabout, to include a series of bends at Waterdell (this would make the current advisory 40mph limit mandatory)

The project was overseen and managed by the council and EQUANS, with engineers from contractor CR Reynolds carrying out the work.
