Essential maintenance works will be carried out to Grimsby’s landmark Corporation Road Bridge for four days later this month.

The works                                              

The maintenance works include:

  • A full mechanical inspection and service
  • Installation of a new power switch
  • Removal of pigeon foul and repair of pigeon mitigation measures.

Disruption to traffic

Measures will be taken to ensure that traffic is disrupted as little as possible.

The road will remain open for the first two days under temporary traffic lights. The bridge will be fully closed to traffic on Thursday 29 November and Friday 30 November.

The traffic lights and road closures will only be in place during off-peak times (9.30am–3.30pm) to reduce the impact of these works on traffic.

The section of Corporation Road affected by the full road closure will be between the mini-roundabout at the entrance to Alexandra Retail Park and the junction with Victoria Street.

Advanced warning signs are now in place and diversions will be signposted. Businesses in the area have been informed.

Pedestrians and Cyclists

Pedestrians and cyclists will generally be able to cross the bridge but there might be times when this is not possible.

These essential repairs are important to ensure the long-term structural integrity of the listed bridge.

North East Lincolnshire Council and its partner ENGIE would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused during the works.
