From Wednesday this week, contractors from Premier Surveys will start carrying out topographical and utilities surveys ahead of the design of the Cleethorpes’ Market Place scheme.
This will help establish the levels of the road, paving and other features in the Market Place, and identify exactly where all utilities are laid in the ground so that this can be taken into account during the design of the new public space.
The survey work is expected to take a few weeks to complete. The initial topographical survey will not be disruptive, with contractors’ survey equipment located on pavements. Once the utilities surveys start, localised traffic management (temporary traffic lights) will be required.
The traffic management is currently expected to be operational between 6 and 14 February as required, over the five weekdays and also two overnights. Car parking bays will remain open in the main, however it may be that localised closures of spaces are required as the surveys progress. If bus stops fall within the working area provision will be made for these to remain operational by creating recesses in any lane closures.
Cllr Philip Jackson, leader of the Council, said: “We’d like to apologise ahead of time for any inconvenience, but the work is necessary to help make sure the baseline data we have is correct before designing the space for the Market Place scheme.
“The appointed designers, Gillespies, will soon be releasing information about public drop-in sessions where you can go along, find out more and help shape the scheme.”
