Multi-million pound repairs for Canwick Road in Lincoln
Canwick Road in Lincoln will undergo a multi-million pound revamp to cut congestion.
The city's MP Karl McCartney announced today that the project will receive government cash as part of a national scheme aimed at reducing traffic problems.
About £1.7 million will be provided by the government and Lincolnshire County Council will offer more than £1.6 million.
Throughout England, £80 million has been promised by the government.
It is hoped the Canwick Road project will start at the end of next year.
Mr McCartney said the work would complement an earlier award of £1.3 million towards improvements in the Rookery Lane area.
He said in a statement: "This junction is one that for many years has created congestion at various times during the day for drivers who are travelling through, into and across our city and I am pleased that my continual campaigning for a number of years on the need for improvements at the Canwick Road/Hill and South Park junction is bearing fruit with my Conservative colleagues in government and at the county council."
