The road will be closed from 8pm on Saturday, 11 July, to 6am on Sunday 12 July.

Clearly signed diversions will be in place along the A160 Humber Road, Eastfield Road, Chase Hill Road, Rosper Road to the Port of Immingham.

The project is situated close to Grimsby in North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire, and will improve the A160 between the junction with the A180 at Brocklesby interchange and the Port. This is a key strategic route which currently experiences congestion, particularly along the single carriageway section, due to the very high proportion of heavy goods vehicles.
