North East Lincolnshire Council and its regeneration partner, EQUANS, are carrying out road core tests in Grimsby and Cleethorpes on Friday 5 August and Wednesday 10 August.

As part of the road core tests, a small section of the road is taken for analysis to see what the materials consist of.

These tests are part of the Local Transport Plan Capital Programme 2022 and will be used as part of the detailed design process for future schemes.

All sites will be managed with stop and go boards which will be operated by on-site operatives. Each site will take approximately 1.5 to two hours for the process to be completed.

  • Fallowfield Road, Grimsby, between Lavenham Road and Oxcombe Close, 9.30am to 11am
  • Dudley Street, Grimsby, between Bargate and Littlefield Lane, 11am to 1pm
