Weekly roadworks update

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 critical utility repairs.

The current works are being undertaken by a number of organisations in addition to Hull City Council, including Highways England and Northern Gas Networks, with scheduled works from Northern Powergrid.

The works are coordinated across the network to avoid pinch points, however the works currently taking place are essential.

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 emergency repair work in Sutton Bridge will finish tonight, offering much more efficient journey times for motorists using this route

“It is important to note that the roadworks taking place in Hull are being undertaken by a number of organisations including Hull City Council, Highways England and Northern Gas Networks. The works are coordinated across the network to avoid pinch points, however the works currently taking place are essential.

“With the major upgrade by Highways England on the A63 taking place until 2025, any road repair the council or a utility company undertakes will inevitably cause some motorists double disruption. This is why we have listened to the public and chosen to do the vital Sutton Road Bridge emergency repairs over the half term break, when there is much lower traffic levels, to minimise disruption and also why we have postponed some of the Stoneferry Road works this week whilst this is happening.

“We do, however, understand the frustrations about the impact of these works and apologise for the inconvenience they are causing.”
