ROAD CLOSURES (click to view details)
The four major works schemes in Killingholme at present are:
East field Rd which ends on the 21st may
East Halton Rd which is two manned lights from 11th Feb to 22nd May which will then close until 10 Sept.
Numerous roads for resurfacing, dates worked around other contractors trying to work collaboratively to reduce traffic management.
The reason we have allowed Network rail to install lights on East Halton Rd whilst East field is closed is because of an unexpected delay due to a high pressure water main being found and the need for a 1000 tonne crane that is now required,of which there is only four in the country.
They need to start the preparation works on East Halton road so a delay is prevented on the end dates to move the freight on the lines.
This has had a knock on effect to the coordination of works in the area. We have had numerous meetings with AMCO, Balfours and Abel UK to try and maintain a useable highway for vehicles and hauliers. As you can appreciate the area is highly trafficked with a large industrial area which sees a large amount of vehicles on a daily basis.
We can only coordinate the network with dates provided at the out set of the works by the contractors.
As you mention congestion is increased dramatically when an RTC occurs, but we cannot for see these events.
All of the above works carry significant weight in there own right to the improvement and growth of Killingholme and I would have been hard pushed to refuse any one of them.
I will have my inspector monitor the works and the area closely to try and keep disruption to a minimum. I appreciate the frustration of the local community and will endeavour to maintain as much highway as possible.
