Road safety improvements set for the Humberstone Road area

11:32 am, Friday, 1st April 2022 - 10 months ago


North East Lincolnshire Council and its regeneration partner, EQUANS, are planning road safety improvement works along Humberstone Road and its junction with Durban Road, with the works carried out by EC Surfacing Ltd.

The works are planned to start on Monday 11 April and will take approximately four weeks to complete. All works will take place during daytime hours between 7:30 and 6pm.

The works will improve pedestrian and driver safety with the introduction of a new raised table, realignment of the footpath kerb for the bus stop (at the Durban Road junction), new 20mph speed limit signage and road markings, in addition to two new lowered pedestrian crossing points (dropped kerbs) at the Fairmont Road and Columbia Road junctions.

To limit their impact, works are scheduled to take place in two phases:

Phase 1

Construction of the uncontrolled pedestrian crossing points (dropped kerbs) on Fairmont Road and Columbia Road, at their junctions with Humberstone Road. These works will start on Monday 11 April and will be completed by Thursday 14 April.

Road closures will be in place on both Fairmont Road and Columbia Road from their junctions with Humberstone Road for approximately 20 metres. A signed diversion route will be in place. Access will be maintained for residents of Fairmont Road and Columbia Road from Roberts Street only.

Phase 2

Construction of the raised table and footpath kerb realignment for the bus stop arrangement at the Humberstone Road/Durban Road junction and additional 20mph speed limit signage. These works will start on Tuesday 19 April and end on Friday 6 May.

To enable these works to be carried out safely, a road closure will be in place on Humberstone Road, from the Durban Road junction southwards to No. 73 Humberstone Road. A signed diversion route will be in place.

Three-way temporary traffic signals will also be in place to manage traffic on Durban Road and Humberstone Road (north of the Durban Road junction). Access for residents of Humberstone Road will be from the south only (Runswick Road).

The council, EQUANS, and EC Surfacing Ltd would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience and assure you that the work will be completed as quickly and safely as possible.
