Private Sector/Retail

Scheme Summary:

Lidl UK GmbH employed SCP to assist them with the planning, detailed design, health and safety and construction management for their new ghost island right turn junction from the busy A46 Newark Road in North Hykeham, Lincoln.

The scheme was delivered under an NEC3 Short Form Contract with Fox Owmby as the S278 contractor. The scheme involved the widening of the A46 over 100m, and the full reconstruction of all footways and resurfacing of the carriageway within the scheme. The works provided a two lane

SCP’s Role:

SCP were the lead designer in the delivery of the scheme, for which they designed all the Civil Engineering, Drainage, Highways, Utilities, Signing, Lining information, and managed their sub-consultants for delivery of the Street Lighting and Service Diversion works. For the design input from SCP’s sub-consultants, SCP appointed and managed them to deliver a coordinated service and approach to achieve best value. While the scheme had issues during construction due to defective diversions of underground services, SCP’s on-site support team were able to liaise with statutory authorities and the S278 contractor to reduce delays and to agree solutions with Lincolnshire Council.


The scheme was delivered on time and on budget in time for Lidl UK GmbH to open their new store in April 2017.
