The Lincoln Eastern bypass is a bypass that was built between 2017 and 2020 to take the A15 away from the centre of Lincoln.

New Route

The new route starts at the eastern end of the Northern bypass at Wragby Road Roundabout, currently this has three arms, two for the A15 and one for the start of the A158. After this is passes south, Hawthorne road will only connect to the Eastern side of the bypass with banned turned to and from northbound traffic, then it meets Greetwell Road at a new roundabout, it then passes over a railway line before heading over the River Witham and canals using a new bridge. It then passes under a railway line before meeting Washingborough Road at a new roundabout with the B1190. It contiunes to head south untill it meets Lincoln Road at a new roundabout with the B1188. It then heads south west to connect to the current A15 on Sleaford Road at a new roundabout. All of the road is single carriageway, however most parts of it is a S1+2 arrangement, all structures have been made wide enough for upto D2 traffic in the future.

Other Route Changes

request containing this information


All of the A15 north of the A1434 and south of the A158 will become the A1434 Signs calling the A15 the A1434 have been around since 2016, after signs for the rerouting of the A57 were placed.


The A57 Lost its primary route status after crossing the A46 in 2013 (was also re-routed in 2014/2015 in central Lincoln), this MAY of been due to it not being able to connect to any other Primary routes once the bypass as built, although the A57 hasn't changed as a result of the bypass


All of the A15 south of the A1434 and north of Sleaford Road Roundabout. This will result in 1.2KM of this renumbed route being a spur.


As well as the entire Eastern bypass being the A15, the sections in the northern bypass between the two parts of the A15 will become the A15, taking the numbers off the A46 and A158.


The bypass opened on 19th December 2020.
