Major Grimsby road to close for three months

A major Grimsby road is set to close for three months from next week as roundabout work continues, North East Lincolnshire Council have announced.

It is hoped that the ongoing installation of a new “fit-for-purpose” roundabout will improve traffic flow and reduce congestion at the junction.

Works began in February this year.

They were originally scheduled to last 40 weeks, but were delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The next phase of works will see a full closure in place on Cambridge Road, between Thursday 3 September until Friday 18 December.

It will affect the stretch between the current mini-roundabout and Grange Primary School.

According to the council, the full closure of the road is required to undertake works to underground utility equipment which the providers have identified since the scheme started construction.

The temporary footpath and crossing point will remain in place during this time.

A statement released by the council said:

“Closing the road completely will enable the team on the ground to make the required changes as quickly and safely as possible, while also allowing the acceleration of the remaining civil engineering works.

“When the roundabout construction is completed the remaining works will include realignment of the existing roads to meet the new roundabout and final landscaping works.

“The new roundabout will replace the existing mini roundabout at the junction of Little Coates Road and Cambridge Road, which has long been a pinch-point for traffic delays during busy times of the day.”

Access to properties, businesses and a pedestrian route will be maintained during the closure on Cambridge Road.

Works are being carried out by PBS Construction.
