Work will soon start on improvements to Risby Road that runs between Winterton Road (A1077) and Appleby (Ermine Street, B1207). North Lincolnshire Council is widening and resurfacing the road in two phases. Work is expected to start on 29 August 2017.
The first phase of work will involve moving electric cables and telephone cables, and widening part of the road. Phase one is expected to complete in November 2017 and will be carried out in two sections. The first section of work will take place from the Brackenholmes Road junction through Low Risby, towards Appleby. The second section of phase one will be from Winterton Road towards and including the bends at Sawcliffe Farm.
For the safety of the workforce and the public, work will be carried out during a road closure. Access will be maintained to properties and to people who live along the road, except when work is carried out adjacent to specific properties. Emergency access will be maintained at all times.
Work on the road will take place between the hours of 7.30am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. Vehicles will be able to pass along the road with care outside of those working hours.
The second phase of work is scheduled for the next financial year, when widening of the road will be completed and it will be resurfaced.
Cllr Richard Hannigan, cabinet member for Safer, Greener and Cleaner Places at North Lincolnshire Council said,
“We aim to carry out all road improvements with minimal disruption to residents and other traffic. We work closely with the utility companies to do this. Full road closures are only undertaken when completely necessary and for the safety of the workforce and the public.
“Once complete, the upgrades will mean that Risby Road is more accessible and safer. No work will take place overnight and vehicles will be able to pass with care at weekends during the improvement period.
