Stallingbourgh bypass approved by DfT

Plans for the £7.75 million Stallingborough bypass in North East Lincolnshire are a step closer after receiving the go-ahead from the Government.

The Department for Transport approved the plans, submitted by North East Lincolnshire Council, to build a link road between the A180 and the A18 this week.

The scheme comprises just over 1km of single carriageway, providing a connection between the B1210 to the north of the Sheffield and Grimsby railway line and the A180 Stallingborough interchange.

The council is now waiting to see if its application for funding for 90 per cent of the scheme has been successful before work can begin on the road, scheduled to start in March 2011.
