Carriageway improvements to major route in Scartho

9:58 am, Tuesday, 16th June 2020 - 4 months ago

General

Works will be starting next week to resurface parts of the carriageway on Louth Road and Scartho Road.

The £170,000 works are part of North East Lincolnshire Council’s Local Transport Delivery Plan for this year to make sure the highway is safe and in good condition for the benefit of all road users.

Louth Road

Works on Louth Road, taking place between the Scartho Fork roundabout and Gordon Gardens, will include the replacement of existing gullies, carriageway resurfacing, improvements to the existing pedestrian crossing at St Giles Avenue and the installation of a new pedestrian crossing point at the Westkirke Avenue junction.

Work to the pedestrian crossings and replacement of gullies will start on Monday 22 June and take two weeks to complete, with works completed by Friday 3 July. To allow this part of the works to be completed safely, temporary traffic signals will be in place between 7:30am and 6pm each day.

Following this, the carriageway resurfacing works will take place from Monday 6 July and take five nights to complete in two phases.

Phase one of the works will take place between Scartho Fork roundabout and St Giles Avenue. The following traffic management arrangements will be in place between 7pm and 11pm:

  • Gate Lane one-way system will be temporarily reversed from Pinfold Lane to Waltham Road
  • Pinfold Lane between Gate Lane and Louth Road will be temporarily two-way
  • Church Lane will be temporarily two-way

Phase two of the works will be carried out between Pinfold Lane and Gordon Gardens with a road closure in place between midnight and 4am.

Scartho Road

Carriageway resurfacing works on Scartho Road, taking place between Scartho Fork roundabout and Edge Avenue, will start on Monday 22 June and take five nights to complete.

To ensure the works are completed safely, a full road closure will be in place each night between 7pm and 6am. The road will be reopened during the daytime.

During the road closure, access to Pelham Avenue will be maintained from Scartho Fork roundabout. Access to Matthew Telford Park and Scartho Top will be maintained from the northern end of Scartho Road. Please allow extra time for your journey as there may be a short wait before you will be able to access these roads.

While both closures are in place, advanced warning signs and a signed diversion route will be in operation. Access for emergency vehicles and bus services will be maintained.

The works will be managed and overseen by North East Lincolnshire Council’s regeneration partner, ENGIE, and carried out by contractor, Specialist Surfacing Ltd.
