The A160 is a short road in North Lincolnshire, England. It connects the A180 to Immingham docks.[1] It is a dual carriageway for part of its length through the village of South Killingholme. There are plans to entirely dual the road, and work should start in 2014.[2][3]

Route[edit]

The A160 starts at a grade separated junction at Rye Hill on the A180 at TA136144. No other road shares this junction.

From the A180 the road is single carriageway to a roundabout on the edge of South Killingholme at TA147159. From there it becomes a dual carriageway straight through the village and the adjoining refinery, until the roundabout at TA169165. From there a short piece of single carriageway runs to the end of the public road at TA177166.[1]

The current route length is 3.2 miles.[4]
