The £100m highway infrastructure project includes 2 bridges over the East Coast Mainline, approx. 2.5km of new highway, 5 sets of traffic signals, 2 level crossings and a Sustainable Urban Drainage System. The project has tight physical and programming constraints to ensure that the highway is completed by early 2025 with an additional key deadline that a section is open by autumn 2023 to enable the National Railway Museum to commence work on a transformational Central Hall scheme.
