Work is due to start next week on a nine-week project to replace some paving along the landward side of Alexandra Road in Cleethorpes.
This work will bring the paving outside properties from The Empire building to Figs in line with the rest of the improvement works in the resort that were completed pre-pandemic and earlier this year, and will complement the work being done to restore the balconies and shop fronts along the same stretch.
The existing paving, in most cases, will be replaced with new natural York paving stone to match the rest of the paving in the main areas of the resort. The kerbing that was put in during the earlier works will remain in place. Additionally, surface water drainage for the properties will be improved at the same time.
It will take approximately nine weeks to complete overall, but with work on site lifted during the half term (w/c 23 October). The works will start at the Empire building end and work towards Figs.
While the works are in progress outside each phase, the parking bays adjacent will be suspended from use. Additionally, the pavement width may be restricted for pedestrians. Both of these measures are to ensure there is a safe working area for the contractors. Access to properties and businesses may be affected for short periods of time.
The works are being funded by the Council supported by grant funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund as part of the Townscape Heritage Project for Cleethorpes.
