Warning of possible delays due to roadworks in Frederick Ward Way

North East Lincolnshire Council, working in partnership with Cofely, will be carrying out highway works to upgrade the Cartergate/Frederick Ward Way junction ahead of a major redevelopment of the area.

Improvement works will start on Wednesday 28 January 2015 and are expected to take 12 weeks to complete. The completed scheme will remove turning restrictions at the junction and improve access into Cartergate. Changes include new kerb and traffic island arrangements, new road markings and traffic signals. The junction will also be fully resurfaced and the pedestrian crossing updated. The majority of the works will be carried out between 7.30am and 5.30pm with lane closures in place. To reduce disruption to traffic, local people and businesses, resurfacing will be done overnight between 7.30pm and 6am with temporary traffic signals in place. During this period vehicles will be able to turn left or travel straight ahead along Frederick Ward Way but right hand turns will not be possible. Diversions will be set up for drivers who would normally turn right out of this junction and exit the town via A180. Motorists approaching Grimsby town centre car parks at Freshney Place, Market Hall or St James’ Hotel from the south are advised to travel via Peaks Parkway/A16 and turn west along Frederick Ward Way. Every effort will be made to maintain access during the works but there will be short periods when access from Cartergate into Frederick Ward Way will be closed. Advance roadwork signs will be put up before any closures to keep people informed.
