Assurance Team Report: A46 Newark to Widmerpool Improvement Project, Highways Agency

The Highways Agency is constructing a new 17 miles long two-lane dual carriageway adjacent to the existing single carriageway A46. The new road runs along a north south axis commencing in the south at the A606 two level junction at Widmerpool and ending at Farndon, on the outskirts of Newark. The improvement is being constructed in order to reduce congestion, improve safety and provide a bypass for East Stoke and Farndon. Some sections of the existing A46 will be retained for use by local traffic and some sections would be downgraded for use by cyclists, walkers and horse riders and for private means of access.
