Stallingborough Interchange Development

North East Lincolnshire Council required an experienced Principal Contractor to construct a new roundabout interchange on the A1173 Kiln Lane, Stallingborough. The project sought to provide access to a new business park, which is set to create thousands of jobs locally.


  • Modification of existing road into 4-arm roundabout, including the construction of 2 stub roads for future development
  • Construction of new footway/cycleway
  • Installation of a 7m deep foul water pumping station
  • Construction of 2 reinforced concrete electrical sub-station bases complete with ducting and brickwork
  • Installation of new 1050mm diameter foul drainage attenuation system within the Catch training facility on Kiln Lane
  • 300mm of ditch clearance and 600mm ditch culverts
  • Construction of 2 new attenuation ponds
  • Stakeholders
    From the start we maintained a proactive and inclusive approach with stakeholders, ensuring that all views were understood. Under the initial plans, the roundabout scheme was due to be carried out under a full road closure. However, after we liaised with a local business, we endeavoured to find a solution to satisfy all stakeholders and minimise disruption to local businesses.

    Through extensive planning with our client and local businesses, we devised a one way system that allowed traffic to flow through the works northbound for the duration of the carriageway works, with Delta Blocks protecting our workforce. This greatly reduced the potential disruption to the operations of local businesses.

    In addition, during our contract period NE Lincs Council commenced development of one of the plots adjacent to the work site, meaning that we had to divert from our initial plans. Consequently, we phased works carefully in order to maintain access to the plot throughout for the contractor, thus achieving stakeholder satisfaction.

    Challenges and Solutions

  • Minimising disruption to local businesses – phasing works carefully and keeping roads open to provide access for local businesses
  • Health and safety – working adjacent to live traffic, it was essential that we had robust and thorough traffic management systems in place, to protect both our staff and the general public
  • Statutory services – through proactive planning with client and stakeholders, we effectively worked around existing services, ensuring that they remained uninterrupted
  • Result
    The project was completed on time and within budget, owing to our consistent and proactive communication with our client and stakeholders throughout the works. NE Lincs Council subsequently instructed us to undertake additional works following the completion of the project, including further deep drainage works.

    The Difference We Made
    By completing the works promptly and to an excellent standard, NE Lincs Council were able to move swiftly onto the next stage of the development. The business park is forecast to create thousands of jobs and provide a significant boost to the local economy. CR Reynolds are proud to have repeat business with NE Lincs Council on projects of a similar nature.
