The highway now provides a safe and even surface for all road users.

James Reckitt Avenue works completed ahead of schedule 

Essential carriageway maintenance works on James Reckitt Avenue in Hull have been completed ahead of schedule. 

The work began in late July, with road closures expected to be in place until Friday 8 September. 

However, phase two of the works, between Gillshill Road and Malet Lambert School, reopened today, Tuesday 5 September, three days ahead of schedule. 

The maintenance work was completed by contractors C R Reynolds, with drivers now able to enjoy a safer journey when using the road. 

The two-part works were required to reconstruct areas of the existing failed carriageway, to ensure the highway provides a safe and even surface for traffic, and that it has adequate grip and skid resistance.   

Councillor Ieronimo, Portfolio Holder for Highways and Transportation, said: “The planned maintenance works for James Reckitt Avenue have been completed ahead of schedule – just in time for pupils returning to Malet Lambert School.  

“This is thanks to the efficiency of our contractors C R Reynolds.  

“We understand that these works caused some disruption to motorists, and we thank them for their patience.”   

The scheme was funded by the Highways Capital budget with Major Projects, Culture & Place budgets.   

The Us Mums event is held at Woodford Leisure Centre on Friday 8 September, 12pm - 2pm.
