Council expands programme of local works

North East Lincolnshire Council have confirmed a series of drainage maintenance works in Grimsby.

This comes after it was announced that works would take place on Cheapside in Waltham next month.

The works in Waltham are set to begin on Monday 2 November, and are expected to take three days to complete.

Now, the council have announced that further drainage maintenance works will occur on Wednesday 28 October at several locations in Grimsby.

Maintenance to the highway drainage system on Bargate and Deansgate Bridge is planned to take place on Wednesday 28 October.

This will reduce the risk of highway flooding and maintain the drainage infrastructure, and comes after engineers identified a series of problems with the flow of water from the road into nearby properties during periods of heavy rainfall.

The junction with Westward Ho will be affected from 8pm until midnight, as engineers use high pressure jetting to ensure the drainage system is free flowing and clear.

A lane closure will be in place at the junction for traffic travelling towards Grimsby town centre on Bargate.

Investigative works will also be taking place on the drainage system at the Westlands Avenue junction.

It is expected that these will also be complete by midnight.

Works will also take place to replace a damaged manhole cover on Deansgate Bridge from 11pm.

According the the council, the manhole is creating a noise nuisance for nearby residents when vehicles drive over it.

A lane closure will be in place between the Bargate, and the Dudley Street junctions with Church Lane.

Works are expected to be completed by 5am on Thursday 29 October at the latest.

Localised traffic management including temporary traffic lights will be in place during all works.

The impact on traffic is expected to be minimal.
