9. Wigford Way (Feasibility)
Lincolnshire County Council
The project aims to improve the walking and cycling environment and public realm along Wigford Way and St Mary’s Street, a key east west corridor in the centre of Lincoln, linking the Lincoln Transport Hub with key retail and commercial areas including High Street and Brayford Wharf.
The scheme will transform a key existing route in the heart of Lincoln improving the public realm and enhancing Lincoln’s historic core.
The improvements will seek to capitalise on the reduction in traffic in the City Centre following the opening of the Lincoln Eastern Bypass and provides an opportunity and a catalyst to redevelop the wider area and stimulate further economic growth.
