Final phase of improvements to pedestrian and cycling facilities on Beverley Road complete

Work has now been completed on a project to enhance pedestrian and cycling facilities along Beverley Road.

Hull City Council and its contractor, PBS Construction (N.E) Ltd, have delivered the final phase of the programme, which has seen improvements to the Queens Road/Sculcoates Lane junction, including:

  • The installation of controlled pedestrian crossing facilities across Beverley Road and Queens Road.
  • Cycle lanes through the junction, connecting the existing northbound and southbound cycle lanes.
  • A refresh of road markings within the junction.
  • Repairs to the raised plant bed on the north-eastern side of Beverley Road.

The works at the junction were the last in a much larger scheme which has seen more than 5km of Beverley Road revamped to create a safer environment for cyclists travelling along the main route into the city as well as better crossing facilities for pedestrians, thereby enhancing the travel choices for those using Beverley Road.

The project was funded by the Government’s Getting Building Fund and was allocated to Hull City Council by the Hull & East Yorkshire LEP to deliver improved cycle links in the region.

Councillor Mark Ieronimo, portfolio holder for transportation, roads and highways, said: “The completion of this scheme by the council demonstrates its commitment to delivering a network that is accessible for all forms of travel.

“Not only have these works helped improve crossing facilities at this location, but they will also support residents to choose alternative and more sustainable forms of transport, like cycling, for short journeys, for leisure and for their daily commute along Beverley Road.”
