Our proposals for Section 7, from the M180 motorway to Graizelound, are explained in detail in the Corridor Preliminary Routeing and Siting Study and in overview in our Project Background Document.

This section runs between Stockwith Road/Owston Road and Chesterfield Canal to the south. This section of the preferred corridor is generally wider that other areas, following an easterly path and avoiding the settlement of Misterton.

The swathe splits into alternative north-westerly and south-easterly paths, with the former crossing more remote farmland and the latter offering a more direct route, but closer to leisure businesses at Haxey Quays and Haxey Gate. The swathe also crosses the Chesterfield Canal SSSI, avoiding isolated properties to the east and west.

The corridor crosses the Spalding to Doncaster rail line and the River Idle in this section.

Thank you for all the feedback received about this section of the route. We will explain how feedback received at the first stage of consultation has shaped and influenced our plans when we present more detailed proposals at our next round of consultation in 2024.
