Update as works continue on major Cleethorpes highway
Improvement works are continuing on Clee Road, with the first phase of works well underway.
The works began on Clee Road on Monday 7 September, with the existing drainage gullies between Isaac’s Hill and Kelham Road being replaced.
The second phase is scheduled to start on Monday 28 September.
Engineers will now begin upgrading the existing vehicle crossings between Isaac’s Hill roundabout and Davenport Drive.
They will also relocate the existing bus stop between Isaac’s Hill and Wollaston Road and upgrade the existing traffic signals.
A new pedestrian dropped crossing point and a new drainage connection will also be installed between Beacon Court and St Hugh’s Avenue.
The works will result in a 24-hour road closure on Wollaston Road between Clee Road and 2 Wollaston Road.
The one-way street between Clee Road and Bursar Street will be temporarily signed as two- way to maintain access for residents.
The schedule of works was announced in August.
Speaking at the time, Councillor Stewart Swinburn 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.”
Carriageway resurfacing and road marking renewal is planned to start on Monday 16 November.
North East Lincolnshire Council say that the scheme will be completed by Friday 27 November.
