The Grantham Southern Relief Road is a new 3.5km long distributor road to the south of Grantham. It consists of a new junction on the A1 (Spittlegate Junction), and a new road east of here to meet the A52 to the east of the town.
The relief road is being built in three phases:
- Phase One: the creation of a roundabout off the B1174 and a road along Tollmache Road leading to a second new roundabout. Works were carried out by Fitzgerald Civil Engineering and were completed in August 2016.
- Phase Two will join the B1174 to the A1 a new grade-separated junction. Technical approval for design has been approved in principle by Highways England and the county council now has delegated authority through a Section 6 agreement with Highways England and the Department for Transport (DfT) to promote the Orders and build the scheme. Galliford Try has been identified as preferred contractor.
- Phase Three will link the A52 at Somerby Hill to the new roundabout off the B1174, crossing the Witham Valley, the East Coast railway line and the River Witham by means of a viaduct/bridge to be constructed. Archaeological site works are now complete.
