A series of upgrades to improve six level crossings in the town starts on Saturday 30 May with 16 days of work to be carried out at Wellowgate level crossing in the town centre.

 

 

Mark Tarry, route managing director for Network Rail, said: “The investment in Grimsby will bring the crossings up to the most modern standard and will make the network in the area more reliable and efficient for both rail users and the communities nearby.”

 

 

“We have worked with North East Lincolnshire Council to ensure that each crossing is closed for the minimum amount of time and that diversions will keep any disruption to a minimum for road users.”

 

 

This will be followed by further upgrades at Friargate, Fish Dock Road, Pasture Street, Littlefield Lane and Garden Street level crossings, with the work due to be completed by the end of September.

 

 

All six existing level crossings will be replaced by obstacle detection barriers which scan the crossing using a laser to confirm it is clear before the train is allowed to cross.   More upgrades to different parts of the network in North Lincolnshire will be announced later in the year.

 

 

Road diversions will be in place throughout the work with detailed information available via the North East Lincolnshire Council website. Access for pedestrians and cyclists will be maintained throughout.

 

 

Two information sessions will be held in the Training Room at Grimsby Town railway station on Tuesday 2 June (4pm – 7pm) and Wednesday 3 June (8am – 1pm) for residents and business owners to learn more about the improvement project and the benefits it will bring to Grimsby and the surrounding areas.
