Roadworks taking place in Hull

Hull is in the midst of a huge transformation to its transport system, with major works taking place across the city, including the A63, Stoneferry Corridor and ongoing utility repairs to vital gas, water and electric supplies.

Once complete, the upgrades will offer improved transport infrastructure for motorists, cyclist and pedestrians.

Motorists are advised to plan their journey 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.

Councillor Dean Kirk, portfolio holder for highways said: “The city is working towards building a more sustainable network, and whilst this critical work takes place, motorists are asked to stagger journey times and consider using the cycle lanes and public transport. Even if just five per cent of motorists choose a more sustainable form of transport, there would be a significant reduction in congestion levels.

“We understand the frustration these delays can cause, however it is important to remember that we are improving roads that the public use to travel on. If these works don’t take place, then we will be operating a transport network that is not fit-for-purpose.”
