Day of maintenance planned for key Grimsby bridge
Routine maintenance works will be carried out later this month to Grimsby’s landmark Corporation Road Bridge by the council’s regeneration partner, ENGIE.
The maintenance works include:
- Lubricating and cleaning of the mechanical parts
- A trial run of the lifting mechanism
The works will be carried out on Tuesday 29 October 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.
Pedestrians and cyclists will generally be able to cross the bridge but there might be times when this is not possible.
The maintenance of the bridge is essential to ensuring the long-term structural integrity of the listed bridge.
North East Lincolnshire Council and its partner ENGIE would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused during the works.
