Lincolnshire County Council has submitted a planning application for a single carriageway Eastern Bypass.
A notice of application has been displayed on a roundabout on Wragby Road.
The proposed bypass will link the existing northern relief road at Wragby Road to the A15 Sleaford Road with new junctions and bridges at Hawthorn Road, Greetwell Road, Lincoln to Market Rasen railway line, River Witham, Washingborough Road, Heighington Road and Lincoln Road.
Members of the public can see copies of the application, plans, environmental statement and all other documents at the County Council buildings on Waterside South.
They can also be viewed at City Hall, North Kesteven District Council headquarters and West Lindsey District Council offices until March 21.
Anybody who wishes to give their thoughts on the application should visit www.lincolnshire.gov.uk or by writing to Head of Planning, Lincolnshire County Council, Unit 16 Witham Park House, Waterside South, Lincoln, LN5 7JN.

    Be grateful for anything if it relieves the traffic congestion in the city centre. Some people are never happy .

    A single carriageway will only be OK if they do not allow any Housing development on the route. If they still want to allow building of 5-10,000 new Houses, then it must be dualled as originally planned.

    er a duel carriageway costs extra money which Local Government in the last 40 years defini tely has not got. Money to build comes at a cost - ie higher Council Tax - money LCC has not got. Simple.

    Why waste money building a single bypass when for just a bit more money and a bit more land we can have a proper dual carriageway and futureproof the road.Its bound to cause disruption to residents but at least if its done properly once it won't have to be done again in the future.

    I want to see the Eastern bypass completed in my life time and I'm already into my 60's! Let's get on with it now!

    I believe the application for a dualled road was refused hence the new application for the single carriageway. As a resident who lives near the proposed site I am thankful that it will just be a single road.

    Refuse it until they see sense and apply to build it as a dual carriageway for the entire distance. Then we hopefully won't see the same problems as with the western bypass!
