Footpath testing works taking place in Grimsby

11:22 am, Wednesday, 20th October 2021 - 1 month ago

General

Footway testing works will be taking place later this month at the Bargate and Dudley Street junction and on Hainton Avenue, between Sixhills Street and Catherine Street, in Grimsby.

The works will start on Monday 25 October and are expected to take no longer than five days to complete in both locations.

No traffic management will be required during the works, but pedestrians will be diverted onto the verge or adjacent footpath between 7:30am and 6pm each day. Cones and barriers will be in place for their safety.

The results of the testing will be used to support the ongoing development of improvement schemes in the areas. More details of the works will be announced as the schemes progress.  

The testing works are essential to ensure the footpaths are designed correctly, any underground hazardous materials can be identified and removed safely and to allow utility infrastructure to be identified prior to works starting.

North East Lincolnshire Council’s regeneration partner, EQUANS, will be managing and overseeing the works with local contractor, Southam Services, carrying out the testing.
