Hull’s ambitious project to improve its transport system continues this week as essential major works take place across the city.
They include works at the A63 and Stoneferry Corridor and also critical utility repairs.
The works are being undertaken by organisations including Highways England, Northern Gas Networks and Hull City Council, with scheduled works from Northern Powergrid.
Due to the poor state of the carriageway necessitating additional repairs, the programme for Cottingham Road and Cranbrook Avenue now has an anticipated completion date of July 11, and Cranbrook Avenue will remain closed until June 27 to ensure the works can be completed safely.
Motorists are advised to plan their journeys before travelling using One.Network and to keep up-to-date with Stoneferry Corridor works download the Hello Travaux app on the App Store on Google Play.
