Ground investigation works on Riverhead, Grimsby

12:05 pm, Thursday, 9th September 2021 - 3 years ago

Town Deal

From Monday 20 September for up to 4 days, localised ground investigation work will take place in Riverhead Square during the day-time from 9am to 6pm.

This is part of the design work for the second phase of the works in the Riverhead area, and will involve drilling two boreholes on either side of the water in the embankment area. During the works, there will be noise and vibrations locally within the area. Access to all businesses will be maintained at all times.

As previously reported, the works in the area have been ongoing since March as part of the £1m Government Accelerated Towns Fund grant, which was awarded to North East Lincolnshire Council earlier this year.

But with the initial works nearing completion, work is progressing on the design of the second element of the project as part of the main Towns Fund work.

As part of the initial concept design for the Riverhead Phase 2 works (designs released last year), an additional footbridge was proposed across the Riverhead near the Barge. The ground investigation work is designed to find out whether the embankments are strong enough to hold a bridge, and whether the old Garth Lane footbridge could be re-used in this area.

North East Lincolnshire Council’s regeneration partner, ENGIE, will manage and oversee the works with specialist contractor, GOWN Engineers carrying out the works. 

The Council, ENGIE and GOWN Engineers would like to apologise for any inconvenience during the works.
