Construction News Image
Winvic Construction has started work on a second project awarded to it under the Lincolnshire County Council highways framework contract.

Work has begun on the resurfacing and signal improvement scheme on Newland, between Carholme Road and Mint Street, along with sections of Wigford Way, Mint Lane and Lucy Tower Street.

As part of proposed works, Winvic will be improving multiple highway assets, including drainage, footways, kerbs, surfacing, traffic signals and road markings.

The General Works Lot contract is designed to deliver new infrastructure assets and improvements across the County over a four-year period.

Winvic commenced construction in April, and work is expected to be completed by November 2024.

Activities at Carholme Road and Lucy Tower Street junction feature the replacement and upgrade of existing signal equipment, new construction of traffic islands and footways replacements. Newland will see footpath replacements, and new carriageway surfacing.

Altogether it is expected some 9,800sq m of new carriageway will be placed, plus 2,200sq m of footpath asphalt, 100m of new drainage systems, alongside repair works on gullies and ironwork renewals.

Winvic will oversee traffic management, implementing lane closures and one-way restrictions on westbound Newland traffic. The resurfacing works will primarily occur overnight towards the end of the programme with full road closures in place.

As part of its social value commitments to the region, Winvic is also engaging local schools through careers talks and on an art project, which will see the pupils’ winning creations printed on the construction site hoarding.

Winvic is furthering its community support by donating copies of the 'When I Grow Up' book to local schoolchildren, has sponsored the Greenbank JFC U9s football team, and has installed defibrillators on city centre site hoardings.

Rob Cook, Winvic's Managing Director for Civils and Infrastructure, said: "We're delighted to have been awarded our second highways scheme as part of the four-year Lincolnshire County Council (LCC) highways framework.

"We look forward to building an even stronger relationship with LCC’s team while delivering these transformative infrastructure improvements. Our commitment extends beyond construction through to actively engaging with the local community and promoting safety.

"We look forward to delivering these essential upgrades with minimal disruption and maximum benefits to nearby communities, businesses and road users."
