The A63 Castle Street.

Log on and have your say on major Hull upgrade

Members of the public can go online and have their say on a major upgrade that will transform Hull.

The A63 Castle Street scheme will create a much better connection between the city centre and the retail and docks area. This will support the city’s economic growth, improving journeys to and from the centre, and will help the Port of Hull to thrive.

Highways England is hosting a public information webinar, offering the chance to discuss these improvements. The event, which takes place on Monday 1 March at 5pm, is a chance to get an update and ask the project team questions.

Highways England project manager Bernice Beckley said: “We look forward to providing an update on the good progress we are making with the A63 Castle Street scheme. This is a great opportunity for us to listen to people’s views and answer their questions.”

The major project will see the introduction of a new junction by lowering the level of the A63 at the Mytongate junction. Ferensway and Commercial Road will cross the A63, creating a split-level junction.

The eastbound carriageway between Princes Dock Street and Market Place will be widened to three lanes, and a new bridge built over the A63 at Porter Street. The city’s new bridge, Murdoch’s Connection, will also open soon.
