Works to construct the new Cycle Superhighway scheme have been progressing on site and the traffic management barriers have now been removed on the eastbound carriageway.
There are some final works which need to be completed to extend the height of the safety barrier on the flyover on this stretch of carriageway as it reaches the Lockhill roundabout to ensure the safety of cyclists.
The materials needed to complete these works were delayed due to COVID-19, which meant they could not be carried out as part of the original works and with the previous traffic management barriers in place.
The works will now need to be completed under a single lane closure on the bridge during off-peak times between 9.30am and 3.30pm Monday to Friday only. A two-lane approach to Lockhill roundabout will be maintained.
Work will start on Monday 28 June and will take up to two weeks.
It is hoped that by closing the lane with cones only at times when work is being carried out that this will help traffic flow when the contractor is not on site working and during weekends when the two lanes can once again be reopened.
Works are continuing on the westbound carriageway and are expected to finish in mid-July.
The first section of the £2.6m project will then be complete. The full project will see a total of 3.8km of new off-road cycleway constructed to give cyclists a safe and sustainable route across the South Humber Bank to access work and training facilities.
£2.2m of the funding came from the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership (GLLEP), with £400,000 contributed by the council and private sector.
North East Lincolnshire Council and ENGIE would like to apologise in advance of these works for any inconvenience caused and thank road users and businesses for their support while we carry out these improvements.
