Grimsby Town centre resurfacing update

Part of a Grimsby town centre street is to be re-laid later this week with a more traditional road surface material after the block paving that was used worked loose in the recent bad weather.

The works will be at no cost to the Council and will involve re-laying the raised table area at the junction of Bethlehem Street and Station Approach.

The block paving was laid as part of a major redevelopment of the town centre carried out by North East Lincolnshire Council and its regeneration services partner Cofely.

All works will be managed at no extra cost to the council under the existing contract for the town centre redevelopment.

As reported, these works were planned for the spring but have been brought forward after the area was affected by the recent bad weather.

To reduce disruption and protect the workforce, the works will be carried out under a full road closure from 7pm on Friday 6 February to 6am on Saturday 7 February.

While it is anticipated to take one night, if the weather prevents the work being completed on Friday the road will close again on Saturday night, local diversions will be in place.

Some resurfacing works are also planned for parts of Riverhead and Town Hall Street early next week, but only once the work in Bethlehem Street is complete.
