The transformation of Hull’s former Central Fire Station into a new high-tech learning centre for Ron Dearing University Technical College (UTC) will begin this month.
Sewell Construction, which is delivering the project on behalf of the UTC, will be working on site from Monday 11 July until summer 2023.
During the works, Worship Street will be closed between Freetown Way and the Hull History Centre car park. As a result, no traffic will be able to enter or exit Freetown Way from Worship Street.
The road closure is necessary to ensure the safe movement of construction vehicles and Hull New Theatre touring company vehicles.
Access to Hull History Centre car park will be available via Jarratt Street, with two-way temporary traffic lights in place. There will be a signed diversion for all other traffic.
Steve Ratcliffe, Site Manager for Sewell Construction, said: “We are extremely proud to be working on behalf of the UTC to deliver this exciting project, which will create more opportunities for young people from across the city.
“As with any Sewell project, this scheme is about more than construction for us, and, wherever possible, we will look to engage both students and the community in the redevelopment, which will see an important building brought back to life.”
