Electrification for Hull (and Cleethorpes?) moves forward?

Construction News reports (you'll need to try and get round the paywall) Network Rail is searching for contractors to join an alliance for electrification work covering routes to Hull and Cleethorpes, amongst other destinations.

The mention of Cleethorpes is rather odd as the article refers to it as a branch of the main North Transpennine Route (which it isn't), and mentions nothing about electrifying the South Transpennine Route (which Cleethorpes is on). Plus there has been no previous indication of Cleethorpes electrification even being considered.

It is good to see Hull electrification possibly moving forward however.
