WORK to transform a busy junction and main through-fare through central Grimsby will start in mid-January, with the installation of a fit-for-purpose roundabout to improve traffic flow and provide access to a potential new housing site.
Once complete the new roundabout will replace the existing mini roundabout at the junction of Cambridge Road and Little Coates Road, which has long been a pinch-point for traffic delays during busy times of the day.
The majority of the works are being funded through a £1.8m grant from the Greater Lincolnshire LEP, matched with funding from NELC.
The highway improvement works are expected to take 40 weeks to be delivered, due to start on Monday 13 January 2020. Disruption to road users will be reduced to a minimum at the beginning and end of the scheme as the bulk of the works will take place on the former Western site.
Once completed, the existing routes of Cambridge Road and Little Coates Road will have been re-aligned to meet the new roundabout.
As part of the works, a few trees will be removed and replaced elsewhere to allow the roundabout to be constructed. However, there are a few protected trees in the area which will remain where they are.
If you’d like to find out more about the works, there’s a public engagement event at the Humber Royal Hotel on Tuesday 17 December, from 5.30pm to 7pm, where plans for the scheme will be on view.
