Major Cleethorpes highway set for revamp

A major route into Cleethorpes is to become subject to a series of improvement works next month, with plans to upgrade the traffic signals, resurface the carriageway and carry out changes to the road layout.

The works are due to start on Clee Road on Monday 7 September.

North East Lincolnshire Council say that the scheme will be completed by Friday 27 November.

Works will also include the replacement of existing drainage gullies, improving existing vehicle crossings and road marking renewal.

There will be some changes to the road layout on Clee Road between Beacon Court and Isaac’s Hill roundabout.

This will include the introduction of a new pedestrian crossing point in the middle of the road between Beacon Court and St Hugh’s Avenue, and the introduction of formal bus stop markings opposite St Hugh’s Avenue junction.

The bus stop between Isaac’s Hill and Wollaston Road will be relocated to reduce conflict with passing and parked vehicles.

Additionally, the on-road cycle lane between Brereton Avenue and Beacon Court, which currently runs between two lanes of traffic, will also be relocated.

The cycle lane will be moved to the kerb edge so that the two lanes of traffic can sit side by side and cyclists aren’t between the flow of traffic.

The on-road cycle lane to the kerb edge between Brereton Avenue and Grimsby Road, will be widened to two metres.

Works are set to be carried out in phases to reduce disruption to motorists.

Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport, said:

“These works are part of the council’s Local Transport Plan for this year to make sure the highway is in a safe and good condition for everyone.

“By carrying out these works, we are able to improve the layout of the road, the flow of traffic with upgraded traffic lights, and the safety for all road users with the re-location of cycle lanes and the installation of a pedestrian crossing point in the middle of the busy road.”

The development is being managed and overseen by the council’s regeneration partner, ENGIE.

Contractor Specialist Surfacing Ltd is carrying out the works.
