Essential footpath resurfacing works have began in east Hull

Footpath resurfacing works commence in east Hull  

Essential resurfacing works began in east Hull yesterday (Monday 29 April), which aim to provide much-needed improvements to the footpaths.

As part of the council’s investment in the city’s footpaths, improvements and resurfacing works will take place on Clare Grove, Oriel Grove, Exeter Grove, and St Johns Grove.

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

Works began yesterday and are expected to take approximately five weeks to complete, weather permitting.

To allow these works to be done safely, they will be undertaken under footpath closure. However, access will be maintained for residents.

Jason Randle, Head of Place and Highways Infrastructure 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.

“As a Council, we are focused on ensuring all footpaths across the city are smooth, even, and safe. We thank residents in advance for their patience while we carry out these works.”

The scheme will be funded by Hull City Council’s Capital Footway Programme and carried out by Wright Civil Engineering Limited on behalf of the Council.
