Galliford Try secures work on third phase of Grantham Southern Relief Road


The Highways business of the UK-based construction firm Galliford Try has secured work on the final phase of the Grantham Southern Relief Road.

Lincolnshire County Council is leading the project, which is supported by South Kesteven District Council, Homes England and the Greater Lincolnshire LEP.

The work on the Grantham Southern Relief Road involves construction of the 3.5km relief road in three phases and aims to improve the town's infrastructure and growth.

This phase follows works on the second phase, which is currently under way and expected to be concluded later this year.

Scheduled to begin in April, the work on the final phase, worth £48m, involves connection of the A52 at Somerby Hill to the B1174, crossing the Witham Valley, River Witham and East Coast railway line through a new viaduct.

Upon completion, the complete Grantham Southern Relief Road will stretch for 3.5km, connecting the A52 at Somerby Hill to the A1.

The project aims to reduce congestion, disruption, and delays and create a safe and accessible town centre while reducing carbon emissions and noise pollution.

Galliford Try Highways business managing director Duncan Elliott said “We are delighted to be furthering our relationship with Lincolnshire County Council following the successful completion of the Lincoln Eastern bypass, and the success we have had so far on the Grantham Southern Relief Road.

“Building strong relationships with local authorities is a key part of the strategy for our business and this is a fantastic example of how our collaborative approach can benefit all the stakeholders and lead to high-quality infrastructure for local communities.”
