A180 bridge repair project

Vital structural repairs are being planned during 2024 to ensure the main road into Grimsby and Cleethorpes can safely carry traffic in the decades ahead.

The project, one of the most important of its kind along the A180, is being supported by £8-million of funding from the Department of Transport. This was secured by North East Lincolnshire Council due to the importance of the road for the borough’s economic and visitor growth in the future.

It will see essential work take place to three structures: the Gilbey Road flyover, Alexandra Dock bridge, and the Cleethorpe Road flyover. They all form the route into Grimsby between Pyewipe Roundabout and Riby Square with the main scheme starting at the end of February this year.

Regular inspections and condition reports have shown deterioration of the bridges’ carriageways and the underlying structures over recent years. The works will include deck repairs, bearing replacements, re-waterproofing, installation of concrete and steel safety barriers and carriageway resurfacing. Whilst there is no imminent danger, the analysis shows this work is essential to preserve the life of the bridges in the longer term.

Contractors, VSL, will be undertaking the repairs to the bridges.
