This route, known locally as the Scunthorpe Ridgeway, was designed to link communities together, providing better access for everyday journeys to schools, local shops and workplaces. The Ridgeway forms a spinal route through Scunthorpe, from Manor Park in the south through to Normanby Hall to the north of the town. There are plans to link the Ridgeway to the large neighbouring village of Winterton in the future.
