Day of maintenance for Corporation Road Bridge

1:24 pm, Monday, 16th November 2020 - 2 weeks ago

General

Routine maintenance works will be carried out to Grimsby’s landmark Corporation Road Bridge.

The maintenance work will include the oiling and cleaning of the mechanical parts and a trial run of the lifting mechanism.

Engineers will also have the opportunity to carry out some investigative works to support the ongoing planning of the bridge’s refurbishment scheme planned to start next year. The additional works will test the structure and road surface on the bridge.  

The works will be carried out on Tuesday 24 November and will take one day to complete.

To ensure the works are completed safely, a full road closure will be in place from 9.30am to 3.30pm.

The section of Corporation Road affected by the road closure will be between the mini roundabout at the entrance to Alexandra Retail Park and the junction with Victoria Street.

Advanced warning signs will be in place and diversions will be signposted. Businesses in the area have been informed.

Access for pedestrians and cyclists will generally be maintained across the bridge, but there will be short periods of times when this is not possible.

North East Lincolnshire Council’s regeneration partner, ENGIE, will manage and oversee the maintenance with Fairfield Control Systems and Route One completing the works.

North East Lincolnshire Council, ENGIE, Fairfield Control Systems and Route One would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused during the works.
