Toll Bar junction

Toll Bar junction improvements

Major works to improve safety and traffic flow at Toll Bar roundabout started in July 2020.

The roundabout is being retained with improvements and widening to entry and exit roads, helping traffic flow through the junction more efficiently. CR Reynolds have been appointed main contractor.

The schedule of works will keep the roundabout largely open throughout the project, without the need for four-way traffic signals. The four ‘splitter’ islands on the entry points to the roundabout will be removed in the project’s first week to enable this to happen.

Feedback from the community

Opinions have already been sought from several Parish Councils and residents in the immediate vicinity of the works on a preferred way of undertaking this initial, intensive piece of work. A major letter drop to the surrounding area has also taken place to advise residents and businesses of the works.

As a result of the engagement, during the first four days of the project (from 27 July), Station Road, east and west of the roundabout, will be closed in the daytime between 7:30am to 7pm. The A16 north and south will be subject of a two-way traffic signal over these four days.

Contact details

CR Reynolds has appointed a public liaison officer, Chris Butts, for the duration of the project for any concerns relating to its operations. The scheme is scheduled to be completed within six months with the hope it can be completed sooner. Chris will be available during normal office working hours, Monday to Friday on 07779 431 127, from Monday 20 July 2020.

Specific issues regarding the project can be raised by contacting the delivery team by email at or write to Toll Bar Junction Improvements Engagement Team, New Oxford House, George Street, Grimsby, DN31 1HB.
