Traffic signal improvements on Scartho Road/Matthew Telford Park

3:26 pm, Wednesday, 19th July 2023 - 11 months ago


North East Lincolnshire Council and its delivery partner, Equans, are carrying out works to upgrade the existing traffic signals at the junction of Scartho Road and Matthew Telford Park.

The works will begin on Monday 31 July and will be completed on Saturday 26 August.

The works will start with the upgrade of the existing tactile paving, installation of new ducting for the traffic signals, installation of new traffic signal equipment and the repair of the existing damaged footway. These works will be carried out under 24 hour a day no right turn for vehicles from Matthew Telford Park onto Scartho Road.

  • All vehicles from Matthew Telford Park will not be able to turn right onto Scartho Road towards Scartho Fork roundabout.
  • All vehicles travelling southbound on Scartho Road will not be able to turn right into Matthew Telford Park and will have to continue to the Scartho Fork roundabout, and back northbound to turn left into Matthew Telford Park. Advance warning signs will be erected with a diversion route in place.
  • A temporary signalised pedestrian crossing will be provided on Scartho Road located to the south of Matthew Telford Park.

To avoid disruption to the Monday morning peak hour traffic, the no right turn traffic management will be set up on Sunday night on 30 July from 7pm. The temporary control pedestrian crossing will also be set up at the south of the junction.

The above works are due to be completed on Tuesday 22 August. Once all the civil works are completed the road marking works will then take place.

Road marking works will start on Wednesday 23 August and will take three nights to complete.

To allow the works to be carried out and ensure the safety of the contractors, an overnight road closure will be in place between Cragston Avenue and Scartho Fork roundabout, between 7pm and 6am.

Please be aware that during the road closure, vehicle access to premises within the closure will be maintained as far as practicable. Please speak to one of the traffic officers who will be at either end of the closure for access. Access for emergency service vehicles will be maintained at all times.

During all stages of the works, on-street parking will be temporarily suspended. Please support the contractor by not parking vehicles on the carriageway, footpath or verge, in the works location to ensure a safe working area can be maintained and avoid delaying the works programme, which will result in additional nights of road closures to complete the works.

Please allow extra time for your journeys and, where possible, please use alternative routes to avoid possible delays.

The council, Equans, and contractor EC Surfacing Ltd would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience and assure you that the work will be completed as quickly and safely as possible.
