North East Lincolnshire Council

Road improvements to Welholme Road, Grimsby

Works to improve the footpath and road on Welholme Road, Grimsby, between Bargate and Ainslie Street are set to begin tomorrow (Tuesday 17 July).

The work is being delivered by North East Lincolnshire Council, working in partnership with ENGIE, and is expected to take three weeks to complete.

During the works the road will be resurfaced, road markings repainted and works completed on the footpaths, kerbs and drainage on Welholme Road.

Advanced warning signs will be in place.

To allow the works to be completed safely and lessen the impact to residents and businesses all work will be completed in phases.

Phase one, 17 July – 25 July – Footway works will take place at the junction of Welholme Road and Welholme Avenue.

Phase two, 25 July – 27 July – Improvements to the kerbing and drainage on Welholme Road between Abbey Park Road and Ainslie Street

Phase three, 30 July – 3 August – Carriageway resurfacing on Welholme Road between the junctions of Bargate and Ainslie Street.

Each phase of works will be completed under a full 24 hour road closure.

Vehicle access to properties on Welholme Road will generally be maintained throughout the works, but there may be some periods when this is not possible. Emergency access will be maintained at all times. Throughout the works there will be no vehicle access to Welholme Road from Welholme Avenue.

During the works a temporary suspension of the on-street parking will be in place to ensure works are carried out safely.

On Saturday 21 July and Sunday 22 July, Welhome Road will be fully reopened for the annual Great Grimsby 10K and fun run, except Welholme Avenue.

North East Lincolnshire Council and its partner ENGIE would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused during these improvement works.
