Improving the area’s roads – resurfacing starts next week
Nine roads in different parts of the borough are set to be resurfaced during the next few weeks.
Earlier this year the Council, working in partnership with ENGIE, secured £563,000 from the Department for Transport’s National Productivity Investment Fund.
Sections of carriageway across the borough will be resurfaced and in some locations structural patching will be carried out. Structural patching involves removing some of the layers of existing failed tarmac and replacing it with new tarmac.
The repairs will take place over a ten week period, subject to the weather, and are expected to start on Monday 11 September 2017.
Councillor David Watson, portfolio holder for energy and environment, said:
“The work will aim to improve the carriageway condition, minimising future maintenance requirements for the next 15 years and improving the highway infrastructure to support growth in the area.”
The works are being undertaken by E C Surfacing Ltd and are being managed by the council’s partner ENGIE.
Advanced notification signs will be displayed to advise residents and motorists of any required road closures, which may include some overnight closures and local diversions will be in place.
Some works may also require temporary traffic signals and cycle lane closures to allow the repairs to be carried out safely.
Any residents who may be directly affected by the works will be contacted by the contractors with further information.
If any bus routes are affected during the works, the service will be diverted and advanced notices will be displayed on the buses and bus stops that are affected. Parking may also be suspended in areas in order to carry out the works.
North East Lincolnshire Council and its regeneration partner ENGIE would like to apologise for any short term disruption that may be caused by the works.
