Transport

A46: Lincoln

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what plans his Department has for improvements to the A46 (a) within and (b) bordering Lincoln constituency.

[Official Report, 5 July 2011, Vol. 530, c. 1163W.]

Letter of correction from Mike Penning:

An error has been identified in the written answer given to the hon. Member for Lincoln (Karl MᶜCartney) on 5 July 2011.

The full answer given was as follows: (64080)

Within the Lincoln constituency, the Highways Agency is responsible for the stretch of the A46 between the A1434 Hykeham Roundabout and the A57 Carholme Roundabout. Beyond Carholme Roundabout, the A46 is the responsibility of Lincolnshire county council.

The only improvement currently programmed on this section is adjacent to the A46 at Teal Park. The site between Whisby Roundabout and Hykeham Roundabout is being jointly developed by Lincoln city council and Lincolnshire county council. It will necessitate improvements to the A46 to accommodate the anticipated increase in traffic. The development is due for completion in July 2012.

To make precise the extent of the improvements to the road, the answer should have read:

Within the Lincoln constituency, the Highways Agency is responsible for the stretch of the A46 between the A1434 Hykeham Roundabout and the A57 Carholme Roundabout. Beyond Carholme Roundabout, the A46 is the responsibility of Lincolnshire county council.

The only improvement currently programmed on this section is adjacent to the A46 at Teal Park. The site, immediately east of the A46, south of the Whisby road junction, is being jointly developed by Lincoln city council and Lincolnshire county council. It will necessitate improvements to the A46 from a point north of the existing roundabout with Lincoln road and Doddington road, to a point south of the existing junction with Whisby road to accommodate the anticipated increase in traffic. The development is due for completion in July 2012.
