Roads set to be safer in Cleethorpes
RECOMMENDATIONS for traffic measures to make some roads in Cleethorpes safer have been passed to council officers.
A number of safety measures have been proposed in three key areas identified by residents as a cause for concern.
The first is a crossing on next to the Belvoir Road junction of Taylor’s Avenue – where residents feel the opening of a new medical centre in six months time will cause problems to many elderly people and schoolchildren living nearby.
Secondly, to make the area near Signhill’s School safer, it is suggested that double-yellow lines are added either side of the turnings out of Minshull Road onto Pearson Road and out of Hardy’s Road onto Chichester Road.

Zig-zag lines on Hardy’s Road as you turn right out of the school have also been suggested.
Finally, it is proposed that arrow road markings in the two Church Road lanes leading to the roundabout with Park Avenue, instructing drivers in the left lane to turn left and in the right lane to go forward or right.
Currently, arrows point forward in the left lane and right in the right lane.
Councillor Keith Brooks said: “The public have been consulted and the decision will now go to the portfolio holder.
“If the suggestions are agreed, we need to make sure we have enough officers on the ground to make sure people abide the new restrictions – particularly near Signhill’s School.”
