Leader of Lincolnshire County Council warns that full completion of planned Spalding Western Relief Road could take "20 to 25 years"
The £101million Spalding Western Relief Road (SWRR) project is "certainly not a done deal", according to the Leader of Lincolnshire County Council.
Speaking ahead of a crucial meeting on Monday about plans for the four-mile (6.5km) road to link the B1172 Spalding Common with the B1356 Spalding Road, Coun Martin Hill admitted that the project could take "20 to 25 years" to complete.
In a report due to go before the county council's Highways and Transport Scrutiny Committee on April 29, funding of £27.6million is confirmed for the road's northern section between an area north of Vernatt's Drain and Spalding Road.
