North East Lincolnshire Council and its regeneration partner, ENGIE, are delighted to have been awarded £2.2m of Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership (GLLEP) funding to construct a new Cycle Superhighway from Grimsby to Immingham.
The project is worth a total of £2.6m, with £400,000 contributed by the council and private sector, and will see 3.8km of new off-road cycleway constructed to give cyclists a safe and sustainable route across the South Humber Bank to access work and training facilities.
When the project is complete, the new cycle links, when combined with existing cycle and walking infrastructure, will provide the longest continuous off-road cycle link in the borough.
The new cycleway will be constructed in three locations:
- Part of Hobson Way, Immingham
- A180 Westgate roundabout to Lockhill roundabout, Grimsby
- A1173 Immingham to Stallingborough
Work is planned to take place on the Hobson Way and A180 Westgate to Lockhill roundabout sections first and is expected to start in March.
As part of the initial planning of the project, residents and businesses who may be affected by the works are being contacted and asked to complete a survey with any feedback they have regarding the delivery of the scheme.
There are two surveys for each location and they can be found here:
Hobson Way cycleway survey
A180 Westgate to Lockhill roundabout cycleway survey
People have until Thursday 11 February on both surveys to provide any feedback they wish to submit.
The third location on the A1173 will start later in the year and a survey will be created regarding this part of the project at a later date.
