A46 Six Hills
Essential maintenance work to the A46 carriageway between Six Hills and Widmerpool. This work will extend the life of the existing carriageway whilst minimising future unplanned interventions.
The A46 Lifecycle Extension Work (LEW) scheme between Six Hills and Widmerpool aims to improve the road surface and reduce the number of unplanned interventions required to keep both the northbound and southbound carriageways operational.
The scheme involves replacing concrete bays, reconstructing and sealing the joints between them, localised patch repairs, retexturing, resurfacing using asphalt and reinstating road markings and studs.
The scheme aims to:
- make the road safer for all users
- extend the life of the existing carriageway until it can be fully reconstructed
- minimise the number of unplanned interventions required to keep the carriageway operational
