More works to repair paving in Grimsby Town Centre start this week

More works to repair and improve the recently laid paving in Bethlehem Street and Riverhead in Grimsby are starting this week:

  • Sand used to fill the gaps between the block paving has worked its way out of the joints at a number of locations and needs to be replaced.
  • Investigations are taking place to understand why the problem with the sand is occurring and to look at the foundation beneath the blocks in Victoria Street and other locations near Riverhead.

Temporary traffic signals will be in place near the junction of Bethlehem Street and Station Approach for two to three nights this week.

As long as the weather remains dry, contractors will be able to carry out these works and put dry sand into the joints of the block paving in this area.

There will be further work next week, depending on the weather, in the Riverhead area for three to four nights. These works are due to start on or after Monday 10 November but might run into the following week.

North East Lincolnshire Council, working in partnership with Cofely, recently completed a £6m redevelopment of Grimsby town.

The work that was done is being routinely inspected to monitor performance and these repairs were identified as a result of those inspections.
