Overnight drainage maintenance to take place in Grimsby

1:47 pm, Thursday, 22nd October 2020 - 4 years ago


Planned maintenance to the highway drainage system on Bargate and Deansgate Bridge is planned to take place on Wednesday 28 October to reduce the risk of highway flooding and maintain the drainage infrastructure.

Westward Ho junction  

High pressure jetting of the drainage system to ensure it is free flowing and clear will take place from 8pm at the junction with Westward Ho. Works are expected to be completed before midnight. A lane closure will be in place at the junction for traffic travelling towards Grimsby town centre on Bargate to allow the works to be completed safely.

Westlands Avenue junction  

Investigative works will also be taking place on the drainage system at the Westlands Avenue junction, following works at Westward Ho. Works are expected to be completed before midnight. Localised traffic management (cones and barriers) will be in place while the investigation is carried out, but due to the carriageway width, impact on traffic is anticipated to be minimal.

Deansgate Bridge  

Works will also take place to replace a damaged manhole cover on Deansgate Bridge from 11pm. The manhole is creating a noise nuisance for nearby residents when vehicles drive over it. Works are expected to be completed by 5am on Thursday 29 October at the latest.

To allow this work to be carried out, a lane closure will be in place between the Bargate and Dudley Street junction and Church Lane for traffic travelling into Grimsby town centre. A signed diversion route will be in place for affected traffic. Traffic travelling towards Bargate and Dudley Street will be unaffected.   

For nearby residents, every effort will be made to minimise noise and disruption, and to maintain access to properties, but there may be short periods of time when this will not be possible.

The works will be overseen by the council’s regeneration partner, ENGIE, with contractor A Jet Drain Services and East Coast Services carrying out the works.

The council, ENGIE, A Jet Drain Services and East Coast Services would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by this essential maintenance.
