Marfleet Lane flyover to undergo strengthening work

Story edited Aug 12 due to change of start date.

Hull City Council needs to carry out strengthening work to Marfleet Lane flyover in east Hull.

The flyover needs to be strengthened to ensure it can continue to carry the weight and types of traffic that need to use it.

This work will involve major alterations to the superstructure and a full reconstruction of its carriageway, which can only be done while the flyover is closed.

The flyover will be closed to all road users and pedestrians, with work due to start on Monday 22 August, for up to five weeks. Signed diversion routes will be in place.

Work will take place on site from 7.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.

Andy Burton, Hull City Council’s Assistant Director (Streetscene), said: “We want to make sure Hull’s roads are safe for everyone who uses them, which is why we are carrying out these repairs to Marfleet Lane flyover.

“Unfortunately, this will involve a diversion, as this is the only way to carry out this type of work.

“To minimise disruption, we have brought forward the works as much as possible to partially coincide with school holidays and co-ordinated with those being undertaken by National Highways on the A63.

“As ever, we ask for your cooperation and thank you for your patience.”

The council today published a decision record to award the contract to Galliford Try Infrastructure Limited to carry out the work.
