More than 40 footpaths in Grimsby and Cleethorpes are to receive investment
North East Lincolnshire Council has today announced more than 40 footpaths in Grimsby and Cleethorpes are to be improved.
The work which is expected to last for eight weeks comes after many residents in the Grimsby and Cleethorpes area have complained about the state of the footpaths.
The contractors for the council (Kiely Brothers of Birmingham ) will be resurfaced using a process known as slurry sealing. This process is a quick way to improve the footpaths as the mix dries very quickly, normally within 20 to 30 minutes.
Work will star on Monday September 27th and the footpaths to be improved include Beeley Road verges, Station Road, and Welbeck Road.
Although residents of Grimsby and Cleethorpes have welcomed the news, many want to know when the council is going to spend money on fixing all the pot holes within the area.
Although North East Lincolnshire Council announced back in March that a total of £3million of central Government funding will be spent on road improvements, motorists are still waiting for action.
Some residents in Grimsby and Cleethorpes believe they have some of the worst roads in the UK. One resident had to spend £75 after a pothole split her rear tyre.
According to Heycar, Lincolnshire comes 4th for the most number of potholes in the UK.
