Lincolnshire County Council will host six Lincoln Transport Strategy drop-in sessions starting today, offering a chance to help shape the future of travel and transport in and around Lincoln over the next twenty years.
People living and working in Lincoln, along with businesses and other groups, will have the opportunity to ask questions and share their experiences, visions and ideas for improving Lincoln’s transport network at the following events:
- Ruddocks (on Lincoln High Street): Tuesday, January 22, 10am-6pm
- Bentley Hotel in North Hykeham: Wednesday, January 23, 2pm-8pm
- Waterside Shopping Centre in Lincoln: Friday, January 25, 9am-5:30pm
- Ruddocks (on Lincoln High Street): Saturday, January 26, 10am-6pm
- Welton Village Hall (51 Ryland Road, LN2 3LU): Monday, February 25, 3pm-8pm
- Waddington Community Hub (on Waddington High Street, LN5 9RF): Wednesday, February 27, 3pm-8pm
Councillr Richard Davies, executive member for highways, said: “People aren’t shy about telling me what’s wrong with Lincoln’s roads, so this is the perfect opportunity to share your ideas on how to make getting from Point A to Point B quicker and easier for you and others.
“During the events, we want as many people as possible to complete our questionnaire about their experiences traveling around the city and expectations for the next twenty years.
“We’ll then use this information to create a new transport strategy for Lincoln that will include a number of proposals for improving accessibility and transport now and in the future.”
For those unable to attend the events, the Lincoln Transport Strategy questionnaire can be completed online here until Friday, March 1.
Councillor Davies added: “Lincoln is key to the county’s growth and prosperity, and we’re committed to investing in the city’s infrastructure and services.
“It’s not just the people living, working and visiting Lincoln that rely on good roads.
“Businesses also need a strong transport infrastructure to move goods between villages, towns and cities in and out of the county, so the new strategy will have major economic benefits as well.”
