Essential maintenance work to take place on James Reckitt Avenue

Hull City Council is preparing to carry out essential carriageway maintenance work later this month on James Reckitt Avenue.  

The work will improve the existing carriageway on the East Hull avenue between Gillshill Road and Malet Lambert School, for the benefit of road users and pedestrians.  

The intention of the work is 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.  

The works will start on Monday 31 July and will be carried out in two separate phases on the following dates: 

  • Phase one – Monday 31 July to Tuesday 15 August (full carriageway reconstruction outside of Malet Lambert School) 
  • Phase two – Wednesday 16 August to Friday 8 September (carriageway trench reconstruction from Gillshill Road to Malet Lambert) 

To allow these works to be carried out in a safe manner they will be undertaken under a road closure. 

Access for residents will be maintained where possible and the pedestrian footways will not be affected. 

Access will also still be available to Malet Lambert School throughout the works.  

Bin collections are scheduled to continue as normal, with access to emergency vehicles granted at all times. 

However, scheduled bus services will not be able to access this section of James Reckitt Avenue during the road closure. Notices will be placed at bus stops giving more detail. 

Councillor Ieronimo, Portfolio Holder for Highways and Transportation, said: “The road maintenance on James Reckitt Avenue is essential and cannot be delayed any longer.  

“It’s important for our residents that the Council minimises the disruption caused as much as possible, and so I welcome the phasing of the work during the school summer holiday period when traffic is lighter.  

“We thank residents and motorists for their patience whilst we carry out these essential works.” 

The scheme has received funding from the Highways Capital budget with Major Projects, Culture & Place budgets.  

The work will be carried out by CR Reynolds Ltd on behalf of Hull City Council.
