Roadworks are to begin in Hull.
Road improvements are taking place across Hull.

Improvements to Victoria Avenue will take place as part of the cycle route from Hull to Cottingham

Work to resurface Victoria Avenue will start in the new year.

The improvements are being done as part of the 8km installation of safer cycling lanes from Hull to Cottingham.

Once complete, the route will offer a designated area for cyclists to commute between Hull city centre and Cottingham.

As part of this project, the work in Victoria Avenue will be carried out in three phases from 7am to 7pm to minimise disruption in the area.

Below is a breakdown of the planned works:

  • From Monday 10 January to Monday 17 January the full resurfacing of Victoria Avenue will take place.
  • From Tuesday 18 January to Wednesday 19 January speed bumps will be installed along Victoria Avenue.
  • And from Thursday 20 January to Friday 21 January new road markings and anti-skid will be laid along the full route of Victoria Avenue.

Councillor Dean Kirk, portfolio holder for transportation, roads and highways at Hull City Council, said: “As part of the ongoing work to implement a safer cycle route from Hull to Cottingham, we’re taking the opportunity to improve some of the road surfacing and install traffic calming measures.

“We understand that this will be a busy thorough route for cyclists so we want to make it as safe as possible.

“Next year we will also be launching a consultation in the new year on the Local Transport Plan (LTP) and the Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) so that we can engage with residents on where they would like to see future walking and cycling improvements in the city.”

The cycle lane improvements along the Hull to Cottingham route is being carried out by CR Reynolds.

Hull City Council was awarded £2.2m through a joint bid from the Government’s Getting Building Fund, allocated by HEY LEP as part of the Government’s commitment to the Northern Powerhouse, towards delivering improved cycle links in the region and £500k of this will be used in the East Riding.
