Hull City Council secures £500,000 to improve traffic signals



Hull City Council has received £500,000 to upgrade the city’s traffic signals.

The council has been awarded the Traffic Signals Maintenance Specific Grant from the Department for Transport.

The funding will be used to improve traffic signals, which will include reducing the number of halogen lamps, making facilities better for all users.

The work will also include future-proofing the city’s signals and linking them into the council’s smart city platform, which will include connecting signals currently not included in the city’s urban traffic control system.

The Department for Transport has issued grants totalling £15m to local authorities throughout the country.

The maximum that could have been awarded to a single authority was £500,000.

Councillor Dean Kirk, portfolio holder for transportation, roads and highways at Hull City Council, said: “I’m delighted that we were successful in securing the full amount after applying for a Traffic Signals Maintenance Specific Grant.

“This funding is fantastic news for all road users as it will help us to maintain and upgrade our traffic signals, making it easier and more efficient for people to travel around our city.”
