North East Lincolnshire Council

Tree work lane closures

North East Lincolnshire Council is putting in a series of lane and road closures to cut back trees and shrubs on roundabouts and roadsides on the A16 and by Grant Thorold Park.

As part of the planned works the Council also has to remove an unsafe carved tree stump on the corner of Clee Road and St Hugh’s Avenue in Cleethorpes.

The tree stump has a fungal infection and needs to be cut down.

It’s unfortunate as the tree is a popular landmark in the area but it is rotten inside and could fall if not taken out.

The owl sculpture in the tree will be removed carefully and stored while we find another place to display it.

Traffic management will be in place on the following dates to allow the work to be carried out safely:

  • Monday 17 February: Road closure on small section of St Hugh’s Avenue at junction of Clee Road to remove unsafe carved tree stump.
  • Monday 17 February: Lane closures on the A16/Louth Road Becklands roundabout for tree works and shrub pruning
  • Tuesday 18 and Wednesday 19 February: Road closure on section of Durban Road and Robert Street next to Grant Thorold Park for a series of tree works
  • Tuesday 18 and Wednesday 19 February: Lane closures on the A16/Hewitt’s Ave Low Farm roundabout for tree works and shrub pruning.

Signed diversions will be in place for the duration of the road closures.

North East Lincolnshire Council apologises for any inconvenience caused by these essential works. The lane and road closures are needed to keep the workforce safe.
