General

A series of new tactile pedestrian crossings will be installed in Grimsby and Immingham to improve pedestrian safety.

The new crossings will be lowered, becoming a dropped kerb, to almost road-level to make it easier for people to cross and they will include raised dots so people with sight loss can navigate the crossing.

The crossings will be introduced during late February and March.

Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport at North East Lincolnshire Council, said: “These vital improvements will give all pedestrians greater confidence when crossing these busy hotspots, especially those residents with disabilities. Delivered with funding from our Local Transport Plan, it is the latest in a series of works in the area to improve road safety for everyone.”

North East Lincolnshire Council, its regeneration partner EQUANS and engineers McCann & Co apologise for any disruption during the works.
