The way we engage with you on major highways projects has changed. Many of our intentions for future projects are published in our Highways Strategy (PDF) or Infrastructure Delivery Plan (PDF). The projects published in these documents are intended to go ahead at some point in the future but will be subject to us securing grant funding for any upgrades.
We are taking comments and suggestions for projects that have not yet made it to the drawing board to give you the earliest opportunity to have your say. It is possible that your comments may not be used if a project never goes ahead or the opportunity to bid does not arise.
Any project that has grant funding approved will also go through a formal consultation process on the draft design. The process for these schemes is short, straightforward to follow and available here: Major Projects Engagement Process (PDF)
It also details how elected members are involved in the process.
You can submit your pre-bid comments here: Potential Major Highways Projects – comments form.

We are looking to trial ‘play streets’ in North East Lincolnshire but before we do anything we want to know what you think.
Play Streets allow communities to close their streets to ‘through’ traffic to allow supervised safe and free play activities. Play Streets are requested, organised and stewarded by the community for the community. Residents with cars can still access their homes and during any period of closure traffic.
Play Streets have proved really successful in other parts of the country where children were out playing for more than 70% of the time that the streets were closed. Research shows that children are three to five times more active during playing out sessions than they would be in a ‘normal’ day. Children ‘playing out’ also build more practical skills like biking and scooting, and assessing risks in a safe space. Streets that have applied for street closures together have helped build child and adult social interaction between neighbours, friends and families.
The main purpose of the survey is to see if it’s something the community here would value and if people want it locally.
There are more details about play streets at playingout.net.
