Multi-million-pound investment to upgrade footpaths in Hessle Road and Holderness Road will begin this week.

Residents, businesses, shoppers and walkers along these roads will benefit from new and improved paving for the first time since the 1980s.

The work in Hessle Road will start this week, and take part in seven phases to try and keep disruption to a minimum.

And work in Holderness Road will begin on Monday 6 September, split into eight phases across the programme.

Councillor Dean Kirk, portfolio holder for transportation, roads, highways and flood prevention, said: “The work we are doing will make Hull a much more attractive and accessible city for walkers, cyclists and motorists.

“This upgrade is a long-time coming, and we hope that by creating a new and improved shared space, it will enhance the attractiveness of these areas for years to come.

“We want residents and businesses to take pride in their city, and we can only of this by creating a space that they can be proud of.

“So yes, the barriers are back for now!”

Due to the scale of the works in Hessle Road, two different contractors have been appointed to deliver the scheme. CR Reynolds Ltd will carry out improvements between Havelock Street and Division Road, whilst MB Roche & Sons Ltd will carry out work from Division Road to Marmaduke Street.

The first phase of works will take place between the south side of West Dock Avenue and Eton Street, and north side of St George’s Road and Ribble Street.

Hessle Road will see smooth new paving across 4,537m2 of surface area, making it a much more accessible footpath for residents in the area. It will also complement the major road improvements which completed in February earlier this year.

Whilst Holderness Road will benefit from 2,550m2 of new and improvement pavements, enhancing the extensive resurfacing works which took place last year.  MB Roche & Sons Ltd will be carrying out these works.

Both sets of work will take 56 weeks to complete. Two-way traffic flow and access for businesses and pedestrians will be maintained at all times.
