Road closure to hit key Grimsby industrial area

The start of the second phase of improvements on a key stretch of industrial road in Grimsby has been announced after pressure from local businesses.

The Estate Road 2 scheme will involve work on the carriageway and footway and will include a road closure lasting more than a month.

Initial works are set to start next Tuesday (8) working between 6am and 7pm and taking one day to complete.

This will be to clear areas of vegetation at the cycleway on Pyewipe roundabout near Seachill. During this work, access will be closed to cyclists who will be encouraged to cross at Pyewipe roundabout and use the Gilbey Road cycleway.

The main works will start from Monday, September 14 with a full road closure in place between Pyewipe roundabout and Estate Road 5.

The planned road closure date has been brought forward to ensure the works to Estate Road 2 are co-ordinated with other works currently on the highway network, meaning minimal disruption to businesses and their operations, said North East Lincolnshire Council.

A signed diversion route will be in place during the closure, with emergency access maintained at all times.

This road closure for the first phase of works will remain in place until Friday, October 23. From Saturday, October 24, a one-way system will be introduced.

Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport, said: “We’re pleased to be progressing these improvements in this key industrial area. Businesses are keen to see these works progressed and we have worked closely to carry out these works with minimal disruption to them.

“As part of our engagement process, it was highlighted that in an effort to minimise disruption, we would bring forward the road closure from the end of the scheme to the start to take place at the same time as some nearby infrastructure works. I’m pleased the project team at ENGIE have been able to revise their programme to accommodate these requests and support the businesses directly affected by the works.”
