Go ahead for A160 upgrade

Transport Secretary, Patrick McLoughlin MP has given the go-ahead for the dualling of the A160 access road from the A180 into Immingham Docks.

The scheme is regarded as essential not just to meet existing current traffic levels but to the further development of both the Docks and future development including the proposed South Humber Energy Park by Able UK.

Local MP, Martin Vickers described the announcement as ‘excellent, this scheme has been a long-time coming and over the last ten years has been put on hold on more than one occasion.’
