Work began on the by-pass in the early 1930s.  It was completed by 1939/1940.   During the war years only one half of the dual carriageway was opened.  The one side was used for storing tanks.  Prior to the by-pass being completed the route from Bawtry to Gainsborough would have taken travellers along Gringley High Street.
