B1003 Link in Lincoln
This article is about the current B1003 in Lincoln.

.


The B1003 starts on the B1273. It follows Newland and the narrow (and one-way) Mint Street through the city centre. The pedestrianised High Street is crossed just north of the Guildhall, after which the B1003 continues along the more mundane Silver Street. This is still one-way, although there's now room for more than one lane. It's not long before traffic lights are reached at the end of the road on the A15.

Swallow Beck

The B1003 previously ran into Lincoln from the south, but has been truncated to leave just a link in the city centre. The extant section used to be the A57 and A15 mainline, while most of the former section did not exist until the 1970s when it was built (as the A1180) to serve new development to the south of the city. By the 1990s the A1180 had been renumbered B1003, which entered the city centre from a different direction, along the Ropewalk and Brayford Wharf East. Then, in the late 1990s, the B1003 was rerouted so that, for no apparent reason, the B1003 changed its number to the B1273; that road continued ahead over the railway line and Fossedyke to reach the A57. In 2017 the section south of the River Witham was renumbered as part of a rerouted A57 and the new A1192.
