Funding secured for walking and cycling improvements in Grimsby

North East Lincolnshire Council and its regeneration partner, EQUANS, have been awarded £264,000 funding from the Department for Transport (DfT) to support the delivery of high-quality pedestrian and cycle infrastructure near Grimsby town centre.

The purpose of this new infrastructure is to make it safer and more convenient for local residents to choose active travel, such as walking and cycling, for short local journeys. This supports accessibility to key education, training and employment sites, as well as supporting sustainable access to retail and leisure opportunities in Grimsby town centre.

The grant from the DfT is supported by a further £132,000 of funding through the council’s approved Local Transport Plan (LTP) capital programme for 2022/23. In total, there will be £396,000 to deliver all schemes.

Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport, said: “I am delighted that the council has secured this funding from the Department for Transport. When we receive funding, we always aim to identify schemes that will bring about the biggest improvements to residents and businesses. We want to improve active travel opportunities for the people of North East Lincolnshire.”

The programme will support a number of schemes including road safety and walking and cycling improvements in the area.
