Work has begun on improving the boundary walls of Hull’s Queens Gardens.

The walls along the northern and southern edges of the gardens, Dock Street and Guildhall Road respectively, have deteriorated and immediate precautionary works are now underway.

Hull City Council’s Streetscene team will remove several concrete lighting columns on Guildhall Road, extend the safety fencing boundary and install some fencing on the lower footpath, as well as some signage as part of the work.

Concrete blocks may also need to be installed on the northern side to support the wall structure.

Cllr Paul Drake-Davis, portfolio holder for regeneration, said: “These precautionary works are essential to ensure that the Queens Gardens project can be completed.

“The works are imperative to ensure both the safety of the public and the safety and sustainability of the project.”

Hull’s transformative Queens Gardens refurbishment includes the improvement of accessibility and visitor flows to the gardens, as well as the introduction of bespoke pieces of public art, improvement of biodiversity and the regeneration of a much-loved open space.

The project will make the gardens fit for purpose, futureproofing the space and its ability to host large-scale events.

The history of the gardens is being incorporated in its design, reconnecting it with the origins of the space as a former dock.
