Future of Garth Lane footbridge and public spaces

10:19 am, Monday, 18th November 2019

As reported recently, one of Grimsby’s most important historical areas is set to be transformed – and the people of the town are being asked for their help in shaping its future.

The council has launched a consultation and is now looking for your input to help steer the design of the bridge and surrounding area.

Initial ideas include a wider footbridge with new artwork, public areas, lighting and seating. New landscaping will be created from the bridge down to the river basin and work to improve the water quality and protect wildlife will be included in the scheme.

A council spokesperson said: “As a main link between the town centre and the waterfront area, the importance of improving access for pedestrians is a priority and the work planned will make sure this is the case. We look forward to seeing something very special created here.”
