Newark Southern Link Road

D2N2 is proud to be investing £7million of Local Growth Funding into the Newark Southern Link Road.

The Newark Southern Link Road project will create a new four-mile-long road, linking the A46 (near Farndon) with the A1 (near Fernwood); with roundabout junctions at both ends. It is designed to ease traffic congestion and improve journey times along the Newark bypass, by providing an alternative A46 to A1 route and a new River Devon crossing point.

The new road will also open up 278 hectares of land, adjacent to the southern edge of Newark’s built-up area, for housing and employment use. This area has planning permission for over 3,000 houses (including affordable housing), two retail and commercial centres, a 60-bed care home, two primary schools, community buildings, a medical centre, 50 hectares of mixed-use commercial development and landscaped green community spaces.

The total cost of the project is £47 million and other funders include the Homes and Communities Agency (a public body sponsored by the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government), developer Urban & Civic plc, and Newark & Sherwood District Council.
