Corporation Road Bridge update: Footpath closures and weekend working in May 2024

2:19 pm, Wednesday, 24th April 2024 - 3 weeks ago


Engineering works to the 100-year-old Grade II listed structure, Corporation Road Bridge, are continuing.

The steel work repairs are ongoing to both sides of the bridge deck. Primer and coatings of paint are also being applied to sections of the bridge along with the required preparation works and inspections.

Control room works are in progress and all rotten timbers are now being replaced and corroded steels are being removed.

Taking advantage of anticipated low tide levels in May, workers will continue the mechanical preparation works to the underdeck of the bridge. This will involve weekend working.

Footpath closures are also required whilst works are undertaken adjacent to public areas to ensure the safety of both the public and the contractor.

Footpath closures will take place between 9am and 4pm each weekday. The footway will remain open during the weekend working dates. Temporary signs will be in place for the footway closures.

May 2024 weekend working and footway closure dates:

  • Wednesday 1 May – footpath closure
  • Saturday 4 May – weekend working
  • Wednesday 8 May – footpath closure
  • Wednesday 15 May – footpath closure
  • Saturday 18 May – weekend working
  • Sunday 19 May – weekend working
  • Wednesday 22 May – footpath closure
  • Wednesday 29 May – footpath closure

North East Lincolnshire Council, its delivery partner, Equans and contractor, Spencer Group, would like to thank the public for their patience whilst the work is being undertaken. Visit to keep up to date with the Corporation Road Bridge works.
