One of the streets set to benefit from the improvement work is Chanterlands Avenue (from Park Avenue West to Tennyson Avenue).

More footpath improvement works planned for Hull  

Several streets across Hull will undergo essential resurfacing next month, to provide much-needed improvements to the footpaths.   

As part of the council’s investment in the city’s footpaths, improvements and resurfacing works will take place on Benedict Road, Chanterlands Avenue, Chester Road, Helmsley Grove, Hessle Road, Wascana Close, Luton Road, and Woodgate Road. 

The improvements will involve resurfacing and reconstructing areas of the footpaths which have deteriorated.  Once finished the newly improved footpaths will provide a safe and even surface for local residents.   

Works are scheduled to begin on Monday 6 November and are expected to take approximately 24 weeks to complete, weather permitting.    

To reduce the impact on residents the work will be carried out in separate stages on the following dates:   

  • Benedict Road (southern footpath from Hilary Grove to outside number 92) – Monday 6 November to Friday 10 November 2023 
  • Chanterlands Avenue (western footpath from Park Avenue West to Tennyson Avenue) – Monday 13 November to Tuesday 21 November 2023 
  • Chester Road (full length) – Wednesday 22 November to Thursday 30 November 2023 
  • Helmsley Grove (southern footpath from Garton Grove to Ampleforth Grove) – Friday 1 December to Wednesday 20 December 2023 
  • Hessle Road (northern footpath between the two access roads to Pickering Road) – Monday 8 January to Sunday 14 January 2024 
  • Luton Road (western footpath) and Woodgate Road (full length)– Friday 12 January to Tuesday 13 February 2024 
  • Wascana Close (full length) – Wednesday 14 February to Sunday 10 April 2024 
The existing footpaths are currently in a deteriorated state.

To allow these works to be done safely, they will be undertaken under footpath closure. However, access will be maintained for residents.    

Councillor Mark Ieronimo, Portfolio Holder for Transportation, Roads, and Highways at Hull City Council, said: “These works are essential to repair and maintain the surface of the footpaths, to stop them falling into poor condition.   

“As investing in our city’s pavements is one of my main priorities, I am very happy to see that we are on track to deliver a third more pavement improvements this year. 

“I am focused on ensuring all footpaths are safe and we know that residents will welcome the smooth new surfaces once they are completed.”   

The scheme will be funded by Hull City Council’s Capital Footway Programme and carried out by PBS Construction Limited on behalf of the Council.
