Overnight resurfacing work as part of Stoneferry Corridor project

Overnight resurfacing work will begin this week in the final stages of the Stoneferry Corridor Project.

On Wednesday 27 July, resurfacing will take place from 7pm to 6am at the entrance/exit to Glebe Road.

To allow the work to take place safely, Stoneferry Road will be closed southbound from Bandstand Roundabout to Ferry Lane roundabout, with traffic diverted on to Leads Road to follow a signed diversion route.

Access into Glebe Road will be maintained for residents, with vehicles required to exit via Foredyke Avenue and on to Leads Road.

This work should be completed in one night.

From Thursday 28 July until Friday 12 August, surfacing work will be carried out on the Leads Road/Sutton Road junction.

This will also take place overnight (7pm-6am), with no work on Saturday or Sunday nights.

To ensure the safety of workers on site, traffic will be managed via the existing temporary signals (reduced to single-lane running), as well as closures of Leads Road either side of Sutton Road.

There will also be a full closure of the junction overnight on Tuesday 9 August.

Andy Bell, Head of Highways Infrastructure at Hull City Council, said: “We know that motorists and residents are keen to see the Stoneferry Corridor Project finished, and the good news is that the end is within sight.

“The closure of the Leads Road/Sutton Road junction is unavoidable, but we have designed the work to keep the closure to a single night.

“We are carrying out these works overnight to minimise disruption, but we apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.

“We look forward to bringing this project to completion so all road users can enjoy the full benefit of this major investment in our city’s road network.”

The Stoneferry Corridor project aims to cut congestion by nearly 50 per cent, reduce accidents by at least 40 per cent within 15 years and improve air quality for residents and businesses in the area.

The improvements include 10 new controlled pedestrian and cycle crossing facilities, an upgrade of junction layouts to provide better traffic flow, 57,000 sq m of road resurfacing, 10,500 sq m of pavement resurfacing and 5.6km of new and refurbished cycle and pedestrian paths.

The project is jointly funded by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership and Hull City Council.
