Plans set for the construction of A46 Newark bypass in Nottinghamshire

A £345 million contract has been agreed to for the renovation of 6.6km of the A46 Newark bypass in Nottinghamshire. Skanska and National Highways agreed on the contract for the construction of the dual carriageway A46 bypass with two lanes in each direction.

The bypass will be built between the Farndon and Winthorpe junctions, to the west of Newark. Further work will involve the erection of a new five-arm roundabout at Winthorpe and traffic lights at Farndon junction. This will help to improve traffic flow during peak hours.

Where the two highways intersect with the A1 to the north of the town, a new bridge will also be constructed. Additionally, a flyover will be put in place at Cattle Market. The M1 and Leicester are linked to the A1 and central Lincolnshire by the A46 Newark bypass. Approximately 17,000 automobiles utilize it each day.

Later in 2022, Skanska will start the design phase. Construction on the site is anticipated to begin in 2025, with the project opening to traffic in 2028. This is subject to the pending receipt of development consent. National Highways has put the total project expenditures at between £400 million and £500 million.

Remarks on the A46 Newark bypass in Nottinghamshire

“We’re happy to have reached a crucial milestone in the development of the A46 Newark Bypass. This is with the appointment of Skanska to execute this much-needed upgrade,” said Phil Boffey, senior project manager for National Highways.

“This plan will provide relief for both drivers using this important trade corridor. Furthermore, it will help the people suffering from the existing congestion. We are keen to ensure that, to the extent practicable, the upgrades work for the community as a whole. Moreover, we will continue to consider the perspectives of road users and local residents.”

“We have developed a collaborative and trusting partnership with National Highways. This is with this contract building on our current projects at M42 junction 6 and the A428. Thus we will create an amazing 10-mile dual carriageway,” said Jonathan Willcock, managing director of Skanska’s Infrastructure business.

“We’ll be collaborating with National Highways and our design partner, Mott McDonald, as well as our larger supply chain, to assemble a really strong and integrated team.”
