|Route outline (key)|
The A1136 is an urban A-road to the west of Grimsby.
The road starts at traffic lights on the A16 in Grimsby town centre. It heads west alongside the River Freshney before bearing left to go over the Doncaster to Grimsby railway line. At the next set of traffic lights the road TOTSOs right, with the A1243 continuing ahead.
The A1136 now heads north of west along a dead-straight road (although it crosses an unclassified road via a slightly staggered crossroads), before bearing left at a roundabout to pass to the south of West Marsh. In Little Coates it turns right at another roundabout before the River Freshney is finally crossed. The road then follows a semi-rural path between two housing estates before turning right at a roundabout. The road heads north, crossing the railway line again before ending at a dumbbell GSJ on the A180.
Later in the 1920s the road west of Grimsby through Healing and Stallingborough to Immingham, where it ended on the B1210, was numbered B1361. Then after World War II the entire of the B1361, together with the section of B1210 between Immingham and the docks on the banks of the Humber, was upgraded to Class I status, becoming the A1136.
This situation lasted until the coming of the A180, which paralleled the route of the A1136 and therefore removed its raison d'être. The road therefore retained its number through the suburbs of Grimsby but was then rerouted along a new link road to take it to a new western end on the A180, giving the A1136 its current route. The road from Healing into Immingham is now a rerouted B1210. The section through the town is now unclassified but the final section of ex-A1136 to the docks is now a spur of the A1173, although the main entrance to the docks is accessed via the A160.
