Major new cycle lane upgrades to encourage people to travel more actively and environmentally friendly, will be begin to be installed in Hull next week.

The improvements in Holderness Road will create a safer environment for cyclists travelling along this main route in the east of the city, following upgrades to Alfred Gelder Street recently. There are also plans to improve cycle routes in Clarence Street.

From Monday 19 July evening works will be carried out from 7pm-11-pm in the outbound lane between Ings Road and Diadem Roundabout.

Works to upgrade the cycle routes began on Alfred Geldar Street, Hull recently

The new work will include re-signing and relabelling key routes with green lines, creating mandatory cycle lanes and protection for cycle lanes with bolt-down kerbs.

Councillor Dean Kirk, portfolio holder for highways said: “We have big ambitions to create a truly connected city and this latest scheme will help us as we work to encourage more people to cycle around Hull.

“While this may cause some short-term inconvenience, the long-term benefits are huge for the people of Hull. By choosing more sustainable forms of transport, we will not only improve the health and wellbeing of our residents, but will ultimately help to reduce the number of cars on our roads.”

To allow this work to take place a road closure will be in place, with a signposted diversion for the duration of the work.

The work will be carried out by CR Reynolds Ltd, a local company based in Hessle, and will take two weeks to complete.
