Cycle lane from Isaac’s Hill to Fryston Corner being considered

After engagement with local people, North East Lincolnshire Council is considering a protected cycle lane which stretches from Isaac’s Hill Roundabout, along Clee Road and Weelsby Road to the Fryston Corner junction.

Concerns were raised in the initial survey that there isn’t a dedicated and protected space for cyclists, which the introduction of a cycle lane on this well-used route would rectify.

Due to the width of the road, the proposed scheme, funded by the Department for Transport, is possible to achieve without losing the existing on-street parking provision.

Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport, said: “Our first round of engagement has gone well, and we have received a large amount of feedback. Thank you to those who contributed to the survey, this has allowed engineers and transport officials to develop a scheme that can meet the needs of local people and address their concerns when cycling in the area.

“As we approach the second round of engagement, it is vital we continue to see support for this scheme to allow us to secure the funding from Department for Transport by meeting their engagement requirements and demonstrating clear support for the scheme.”

Engineers are currently putting the finishing touches to the detailed design for the scheme and will be engaging with affected residents and businesses within the next few weeks.

The scheme will only be given the go-ahead if the second part of the engagement process identifies a clear need for the cycle lane and has support from local people.
