Guisborough has emerged as one of the big winners in the latest round of the Government’s ‘levelling up’ fund with £15m set to be invested in improvements to the town.

The town was included in a successful joint bid involving Redcar and Cleveland Council and Middlesbrough Council, which was signed off by local MP Simon Clarke.

A total of £4.8m will also go towards highways improvements intended to unlock the building of 800 new homes at Newham Grange, while £175,000 has been allocated towards the preparation of a business case for a potential park and ride scheme near Nunthorpe.

However there was disappointment for Eston with a standalone £20m Redcar and Cleveland Council bid, which had intended to pay for a new swimming pool to replace the mothballed facility on Normanby Road and a long-awaited revamp of Eston town centre failing to make the cut in round two of the fund.

 

A main road in our area was closed by police last night after a serious accident.

Cleveland Police said the A173 at Skelton Ellers, near Guisborough, was closed on Wednesday night following a single vehicle collision at Skelton.

The road was closed between Upleatham Bridge and Apple Orchard Bank.

The incident happened shortly before 9.20pm and involved a car coming off the road and ending up in a field.

Drivers were initially asked to avoid the area.

Police confirmed at 10.20pm that the road had reopened and no-one was believed to have sustained serious injuries.

 

Cleveland Fire Brigade are encouraging motorists to take advantage of their upcoming free drive-thru vehicle safety checks this weekend to keep drivers safe on the roads.

The brigade are working with the Cleveland Road Safety Partnership to host another drive-thru event this weekend.

The drop-in session will take place at Redcar Community Fire Station on Saturday from 10am to 3pm, and will include checks on tyres, lights, wipers, fluid levels and washer bottles.

No appointment is needed. There will also be a number of free motoring items and screen wash available.
