North East Lincolnshire’s economy has strong prospects for growth with major opportunities in offshore wind, port and logistics and other sectors. The Council’s Local Plan aims to create almost 9,000 jobs by 2032, with growth focused on the South Humber Bank Enterprise Zone. Building on the earlier LSTF programme, ‘Delivering Growth through Sustainable Travel’ will connect our most deprived communities with areas of economic opportunity. The programme promotes sustainable travel modes with a strong emphasis on supporting cycling and walking and enhancing key bus routes. The programme creates the platform to ensure the long-term viability of these initiatives.

This scheme is an extension of the current Local Sustainable Transport Fund (LSTF) funded capital infrastructure works currently being delivered in Grimsby town centre. The focus of the LSTF works are to support economic growth in North East Lincolnshire by improving the public transport provision for those travelling to and from the town centre and to local employment zones. Increased travel choices for people wanting to access employment and encouraging active travel options amongst our communities are other vital elements of the bid.
The intention of this LSTF bid is to complement the original project to stimulate economic growth in Grimsby town centre by further increasing accessibility by widening out the network of cycle proof roads and walking town centre routes enabling more sustainable access to additional new development opportunities. This will be encouraged through a package of behaviour change measures by encouraging physical activity, improving information, travel planning and affordable ticketing.

The Local Highways Maintenance Challenge Fund was announced in the 2014 Government Autumn Statement.
The purpose of the Fund is to enable local highway authorities in England to bid for major highway maintenance projects, to help maintain existing local highways infrastructure, that are otherwise difficult to fund through the normal needs element allocations they receive.
North East Lincolnshire Council submitted 1 bid to the Department for Transport for Tranche 1 funding in years 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18. Unfortunately the Council was unsuccessful with this bid.
The Council has submitted 1 bid to the latest round of Challenge Funding to Tranche 2A of the DfT Challenge Fund for highway maintenance in 2017/18. The DfT will announce successful bids in April/May 2017.

As part of the 2012 Autumn Statement the Government announced the creation of a Local Pinch Point Fund (“the Fund”) worth £170m to remove bottlenecks on the local highway network which are impeding growth. The Fund reflects the Government’s strong commitment to supporting economic growth by tackling barriers on the local highway network that may be restricting the movement of goods and people. The Fund is intended to secure immediate impacts on growth and is therefore aimed at those schemes that can be delivered quickly, with the Department’s funding contribution (in the form of capital) only available in financial years 2013-14 and 2014-15.
North East Lincolnshire Council’s has submitted two bids.
Toll Bar A16 ‘Gateway to Growth’
The scheme offers a solution to congestion and safety issues raised in our Local Transport Plan, it is essential to allow both economic and housing growth. The scheme will reduce costs to business, ensuring reliable journeys by reducing congestion at this key entry point into North East Lincolnshire from the A16 South and East Lindsay in Lincolnshire.
Improving this current pinch point will reduce lost time for businesses accessing the South Humber Bank growth area and the Grimsby Dock Local Enterprise Zone whilst reducing travel to work times and increasing the employment catchment area.
The scheme is supported by the main bus operator Stagecoach East Midlands and by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership.
Cleethorpe Road Flyover Structural Maintenance and Riby Square, Grimsby Air Quality Management Area Improvements
This project will enable the long term upgrading of the deteriorating Cleethorpe Road Flyover, a strategic link on the North East Lincolnshire highway network transporting over 20,000 vehicles per day. This will avoid the future failure of the structure which would result in its closure to traffic and creation of congestion on diversionary routes, or imposition of weight or width limitations.
A further enhancement of the adjoining Riby Square junction enables a solution to the long standing Riby Square Air Quality Management Area and includes a new access to the regeneration area of Freeman Street. The associated reductions in congestion will also assist in the Local Development Order for the new Grimsby Dock Local Enterprise Zone.

The ‘South Humber Enterprise Link’ enables sustainable access to businesses, including the impending ABLE UK Humber Port development. It aims to meet the needs of commuters and job seekers in the local communities of North and North East Lincolnshire by delivering a package of measures encouraging sustainable travel choices, reducing congestion and enabling economic growth.
This will be achieved by improving the transport networks across the two local authorities’ boundaries linking the Centre for Assessment of Technical Competence Humber (CATCH) near Immingham with the areas of current and future employment on the South Humber Bank. This will be achieved by enabling a cycling revolution with the creation of off road shared cycle lanes and an enhanced bus service. The project will be complemented by a programme of behaviour change initiatives that will inform and encourage. The package builds on proven best practice measures from North and North East Lincolnshire and elsewhere.

The National Productivity Investment Fund was announced in the 2016 Government Autumn Statement.
The funding allocated to each Local highway authority is for local highway and other local transport improvements which aims to reduce congestion at key locations, the upgrade or improve the maintenance of local highway assets across England, outside London, to improve access to employment and housing, to develop economic and job creation opportunities.
North East Lincolnshire Council intends to utilise the funding allocation to improve the condition of the Key Route Network with resurfacing works to enhance access to employment and housing, supporting the local plan and Council’s key priorities of Stronger Economy and Stronger Communities.
Further detail on exact locations will be published in the next few weeks.
The Department for Transport awarded North East Lincolnshire Council £160,000 for the year 2017/18.
North East Lincolnshire Council has used the funding to carry out preventative maintenance treatment (patching and resurfacing) to the local highway network in North East Lincolnshire to reduce the number of potholes and to prevent pothole from forming in the first place.
The funding enabled North East Lincolnshire Council to carry out preventative maintenance at the following sites:
|Great Coates Road||Grimsby||A1136|
