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.
Councillor Dean Kirk, portfolio holder for transportation, roads, highways and flood prevention, said: “Work in Cranbrook Avenue should complete this weekend, easing congestion in this part of the city.
“We understand that roadworks can be frustrating for motorists, however these works are essential if we are to improve our transport system for better and safer journeys in the future. We apologise for any inconvenience to drivers in the meantime.”
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.
From Monday 28 June there will also be overnight closures on the A63 (8pm – 6am) for 5 nights as part of the Castle street works.
During this time, to ensure access to all properties is maintained, the works on Humber Street will be removed.
