About this event

The A160/A180 Port of Immingham Improvements Scheme is a £50m road redevelopment project to upgrade the section of highway network at the approach to the Port of Immingham. The project will take just under 18 months to build and work on site started in April 2015.

The project involves changing the current layout of the A160/A180 Brocklesby Interchange to a more conventional gyratory roundabout. The widening of a 5km section of the A160 carriageway to dual carriageway between Brocklesby Interchange and Habrough Roundabout and building a new Habrough Roundabout.

The scheme will also see the building of a new Town Street over-bridge structure between Town Street North and Town Street South, South Killingholme, and the building of a new gyratory system on the approach to the Port of Immingham at the junction of A160 Humber Road, Manby Road and Rosper Road.

The new gyratory system will include a new bridge section being incorporated into the current rail line. The 4.000 tonne bridge section will be built off line and at midnight on Christmas Eve 2015, and the bridge section will be slid into place during a 74 hour rail possession.

This technical meeting follows the site visit which took place in November 2015.
