£30m investment plans revealed for Hull transport network

More than £30 million could be invested in the city’s transport network.

The plans would see street lighting, traffic lights and cycling infrastructure given maintenance and upgrade works.

It was revealed in a Hull City Council report detailing proposals which would build on plans for a three-year programme of works to improve more than 30 miles of public highway.

Over the next few years, major schemes including the Stoneferry Road Corridor improvements, the Kingswood road network and the development of a northern park-and-ride feasibility study will top Hull City Council’s proposals.

Councillor Daren Hale, portfolio holder for economic investment and regeneration, said: “Roads, pavements and bridges are part of our core infrastructure, and maintaining these crucial aspects of our city means that we are able to deliver an environment for people to travel, work and visit.

“The vast majority of the works will be taking place outside of the city centre, and demonstrates the council’s overall commitment to expanding Hull’s transport network by investing in schemes to tackle congestion, repairing worn road surfaces, and maintaining our bridges.

“There’s a real drive to improve our transport provision, and with the long-term investment over the A63 already underway, our city’s transformation is continuing.”

The report will be heard by Hull City Council’s Finance and Value for Money Overview Scrutiny Committee on Friday 22 February, before progressing to Cabinet on Monday 25 February.
