Have your say on off-road cycle path designs for major Hull routes

Hull City Council is inviting people to have their say on new plans for off-road cycle paths on two major city routes.

The council is developing designs to take advantage of future funding opportunities as and when they are announced by Active Travel England.

The designs for Clough Road and Cleveland Street/New Cleveland Street would create fully segregated spaces for pedestrians and cyclists, without removing any traffic lanes from the roads.

The full plans are available now on the Hull Active Travel Schemes engagement platform.

There will also be a drop-in session at Trinity Market, Hull city centre, on Thursday 16 February from 10am to 4pm, where people will be able to view the plans and talk to representatives from Hull City Council and highways consultant Local Transport Projects.

The plans include:

Cleveland Street/New Cleveland Street

Creation of a kerb-segregated cycle track in each direction along Cleveland Street and New Cleveland Street between Witham and the Stoneferry Road/Mount Pleasant roundabout.

This would provide a safe, convenient facility for both pedestrians and cyclists, while retaining on-street parking and through lanes for traffic.

Clough Road

Creation of a kerb-segregated, two-way cycle track along Clough Road, between Beverley Road and Stoneferry Road.

This would run along the north side and parts of the south side of Clough Road to provide a direct, safe and attractive facility, segregated from pedestrians and traffic.

There will also be parts where shared use is necessary, but these would be of a generous width to avoid conflict between pedestrians and cyclists.

Cllr Mark Ieronimo, Portfolio Holder for Roads, Highways and Transport, said: “From the recent transport survey, we know that the people of Hull want transport infrastructure that works for all users, including good-quality, safe off-road cycle lanes for those who choose to travel by bike.

“These proposals have been designed to accommodate cyclists, motorists and pedestrians, providing a range of improvements for all road users.

“We hope by providing segregated cycle lanes, we can encourage more people to choose active travel, thereby reducing congestion and improving air quality, health and wellbeing.

“We still want to hear more from the public, so we encourage everyone to view the plans online or come to our drop-in session and have their say.”
