North East Lincolnshire Council also provides a number of public transport alternatives which may help those people affected by the works.
Phone n Ride is the councils demand responsive bus service. Unlike traditional bus services Phone n Ride has no fixed route or timetable.
Whether travelling to work or college, going shopping or a day out call the Phone 'n' Ride contact centre to make a booking.
Phone 'n' Ride operates using three buses in both the rural and urban areas of North East Lincolnshire as well as the neighbouring
villages of Keelby, Brocklesby and North and South Killingholme.
Passengers must register to use the service by either completing the online registration form at www.phonenride.com or telephoning the Phone 'n' Ride team on (01472) 324440 between 8am and 5.30pm Monday to Friday.
Bookings can be made up to six days in advance and the earlier passengers call the more chance they have got of getting their requested journey times.
Dial-a-Ride provides accessible transport for people who find it difficult to use public transport due to illness or disability. The vehicles are all modified to carry wheelchairs.
Passengers ring the office three to four days before they want to travel and book their ride. The booking clerk works out the route to be as efficient as possible, collecting people in the same area with similar travel requests. The service is door-to-door for the passengers and a companion.
All bookings are taken between 9am and 3pm Monday to Thursday. The office is closed at weekends but the buses run seven days a week subject to driver availability.
Dial-a-Ride can be used for anything that the passenger would have been prevented from doing by a lack of accessible transport.
