Port of Immingham access improvements in pipeline

  • 29 January 2014
  • By Hayley Pink

Hauliers regularly accessing the Port of Immingham will approve of proposals submitted to government to upgrade the A160 in North Lincolnshire.

The scheme, which is expected to cost between £73m and £109m, will provide better access to the Port of Immingham and the surrounding area by improving the A160 between the junction with the A180 at Brocklesby interchange and the port. This includes widening the existing single carriageway section of the A160 to dual carriageway and junction improvements along the length of the route.

The plans for the project will now be examined by the Government’s Planning Inspectorate and from Thursday 30 January, members of the public can submit their comments on the proposal to infrastructure.planningportal.gov.uk. The deadline to register comments is Friday 7 March.

If the proposals are agreed, then work on the improvements could begin by summer 2015.

Graham Dakin, project manager at the Highways Agency, said: “The access to the Port of Immingham and the surrounding area needs to be improved for the benefit of those using the route every day, and for the many businesses who depend on the port to move goods in and out of the country. We received a good response to the consultation last year, and as a result we were able to refine the proposals and submit them to the Planning Inspectorate.”
