Road closure in Brigg from Monday as controversial traffic islands are removed
One of longest roads in Brigg is to be closed to traffic for up to eight days.
Controversial traffic islands are to be removed - their purpose having been greatly reduced by the relocation of the primary school on Glebe Road to a new site in Atherton Way some years ago.
There used to be traffic hold-ups and queues when pupils were being dropped off and picked up from the school.
A North Lincolnshire Council spokesperson announced today: “A traffic calming scheme is being implemented on Glebe Road in Brigg.

"The work will start on (Monday) March 4 and it is due to be completed by March 12.
"The enhancements being made include the removal of deflection islands, road surface improvements, installation of speed bumps and road markings replaced.
“The road will be closed to through traffic for the duration of the works, but access provisions will be made for local residents.
"A diversion will be in place to direct traffic along an alternative route.”
The existing traffic islands have been heavily criticised for cutting down the parking space on Glebe Road available to householders who live in terraced properties without drives or garages.
