Work to reduce congestion at the busy junction of Peaks Lane and Hewitt’s Avenue in Grimsby is set to begin on Monday 11 June.
The project is being delivered by North East Lincolnshire Council (NELC), working in partnership with ENGIE and it is expected to take 12 weeks to complete.
Advanced warning signs will be in place.
The scheme will see the introduction of an additional lane on Peaks Lane, New Waltham on the northern approach to the junction with Hewitt’s Avenue.
The traffic lights will also undergo upgrades; a shared footway will be introduced for cyclists and pedestrians to improve safety.
An access way will also be constructed within the highway whilst the traffic management scheme is in place, for a site which has planning permission for future development.
Once the works are complete queuing lengths on Peaks Lane will be reduced.
To carry out these works as quickly and safely as possible, the works will be completed in three phases.
A temporary closure of Peaks Lane will be required during the construction period and the existing traffic signals will be switched off on Hewitt’s Avenue to ease any possible congestion.
Night-time closure of Hewitt’s Avenue will be required to allow for carriageway resurfacing works to be undertaken; however these will be towards the end of the works. Advanced notification of these works will be given nearer the time.
North East Lincolnshire Council and its partner ENGIE would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused during these improvement works.
Local diversions will also be in place during the construction period.
