A £5.7m improvement scheme aimed at reducing pressure on Skegness’ busiest tourist routes is now underway.

The three-year project, dubbed Go Skegness, will incorporate much-needed improvements along the A52 as well as supporting the coastal economy by unlocking potential growth opportunities.

Cllr. Colin Davie, executive member for economic development, said: “Tourism is booming on the east coast, and these improvements will help to ensure this upward trend continues. Tourism is a cornerstone of the Lincolnshire economy, bringing in well in excess of £1 billion a year, so the benefits of these works will be felt countywide.”

The project has been made possible thanks to £4m of funding secured by the Greater Lincolnshire LEP from the Government’s Single Local Growth Fund and will be carried out during the autumn and winter months so as not to adversely impact holiday season traffic.
