26,000m3 of Leca® LWA Delivered for the Spalding Western Relief Road
Spalding Western Relief Road
Work has started on the Spalding Western Relief Road, where over 26,000m3 of Leca LWA has been specified to provide bridge abutment support for a new reinforced-soil embankment. This section of the build includes a bridge over the railway line and passing motorists have been able to see the road taking shape.
The relief road will provide a new route around the west side of Spalding, linking the A1175 and A16 to the south and east of Spalding, to the B1356 to the north, via the B1172 Spalding Common.
This new ambitious development will improve journey times for the local community; improve connectivity by improving south links around Spalding and will mitigate the impact of increased freight passing through the area.
This new project aims to achieve the following:
- support sustainable housing and commercial growth within South Holland
- reduce delays and improve journey times for road users
- lessen the impact of increased freight passing through Spalding
- reduce traffic congestion in Spalding town centre
- enhance connectivity by improving west to south links around Spalding
- improve air quality, reduce carbon emissions and address town centre safety
- improve the reliability of public transport by minimising town centre delays
- encourage walking and cycling by reducing town centre traffic
We will keep you updated on this new development.
