£3.95 million funding for major highway routes in Hull

Almost £4 million will be spent on three major highways routes in Hull, the Department for Transport has announced.

The £3.95 million funding will see major repairs to three sections of the city’s key route network.

Work will be carried out at the A165 Holderness Road from Witham to Southcoates Lane, the A1105 Anlaby Road from Walton Street to the city boundary and Hessle Road from Hawthorn to Rawling Way.

The works will include resurfacing and repairs to footways and cycle paths.

Councillor Anita Harrison, portfolio holder for highways at Hull City Council, said: “This funding is excellent news for the city’s road-users. These repairs are urgent and cannot be funded through the annual maintenance programme as the predicted costs exceed the yearly budget by a significant amount, so this funding is very much welcomed.”

The proposals include a combination of full reconstruction and structural repairs to sections of each route in the red and high-amber category.

It includes surfacing, footway and cycleway repairs to the remainder of each route.

Funding for the works will include £1 million from Hull City Council’s capital budgets.
