Footpath improvement works planned for Princes Avenue 

Essential footpath improvement work is planned to commence in Princes Avenue next month.  

As part of Hull City Council’s investment in the city’s footpaths, improvement and reconstruction work will take place within the western footways in Princes Avenue between Belvoir Street and Marlborough Avenue. 

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

The footpaths are currently in a deteriorated state.

Works are scheduled to begin on Tuesday 2 April and are expected to take approximately up to three weeks to complete, weather permitting.  

To reduce the impact on residents, and businesses, the work will be carried out in two separate phases on the following dates:      

  • Phase one will commence between Belvoir Street and the zebra crossing adjacent to Princes Avenue Methodist Church from Tuesday 2 April to Friday 5 April.  
  • Phase two will commence between the zebra crossing adjacent to Princes Avenue Methodist Church up to Marlborough Avenue from Monday 8 April to approximately Friday 19 April.  

To allow these works to be done safely they will be undertaken under footpath closure, with access maintained for residents via a temporary walkway within the carriageway.    

The zebra crossing adjacent to the church will still be usable throughout the works. However, some parking bays and the bus stop may need to be suspended temporarily.  

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.  

“The council is focused on ensuring the city’s footpaths are safe and well-maintained, and we hope residents and businesses within the Princes Avenue area will welcome this investment. 

“We thank residents in advice for their patience whilst these works are being carried out.”  

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