Talks on widening the A15 between Lincoln and the M180 at Broughton
Transport minister Stephen Hammond has agreed to meet Cleethorpes & Immingham MP Martin Vickers and neighbouring MPs to discuss the need for dualling of the A15 between Lincoln and the M180.
Mr Vickers has welcomed the opportunity to put the case direct to the Minister when he will be joined by Andrew Percy, Edward Leigh & Nic Dakin.
He said "Improving access to Immingham and the Humber Bank is vital if we are to get the maximum benefits from the new industries that we are working hard to attract to northern Lincolnshire."

Speaking in Parliament, MP Martin Vickers (Cleethorpes) said: "I welcome the Secretary of State's recent announcement on the improvement of the A160 into Immingham docks. The next part of the network that needs improving to provide access to the Humber bank ports and industrial areas is the A15 between Lincoln and Scunthorpe, which is in urgent need of dualling. Will my hon. Friend agree to meet a delegation of Members from the appropriate constituencies to discuss the matter?"
Transport minister Stephen Hammond replied: "I would be delighted to accept my hon. Friend's request. I have been meeting a number of Members and groups from their constituencies to discuss the possibility of their qualifying for route-based strategies, and I look forward to talking to him about this matter."
