General

Works to install a dropped tactile crossing point on St Christopher’s Road in Humberston, near to the entrance of Humberston Academy, are set to start on Wednesday 10 June.

The works aim to improve road safety and create a safe crossing point for school children to access the nearby academy and prevent damage to the grass verges during the winter months.

The works will take three days to complete and will include widening of existing block paved area, installation of a dropped tactile crossing and the installation of a pedestrian guardrail.

Localised traffic management (stop and go boards/cones and barriers) will be in place between the hours of 7.30am and 5.30pm to keep the workforce safe.

No temporary traffic lights or road closures will be used while works take place.

Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport at North East Lincolnshire Council, said: “We’re carrying out these works with the key aim of improving road safety. The area is used frequently by Humberston Academy students to get to and from school so it is important we do what we can to make this area as safe as possible for those crossing the road to access the school.”

The works will be managed and overseen by North East Lincolnshire Council’s regeneration partner, ENGIE, with local contractor EC Surfacing Ltd completing the works.
