East Hull route to close for up to 10 weeks of roadworks

Essential repairs are to be carried out on Staveley Road in east Hull, with diversion along busy Holderness Road.

The road will undergo reconstruction and resurfacing work between Barham Road to Diadem Grove. It is expected the scheme will take around eight to ten weeks to complete.

The works will be carried out in two phases, beginning on Monday, June 12, with all through traffic diverted along Holderness Road. Access for residents will be maintained where possible.

However, access will be restricted while some of the concrete repairs are carried out and when vehicle crossings on to driveways are rebuilt. Wright Civil Engineering Limited will be carrying out the work.

Garry Taylor, assistant director of major projects at Hull City Council said: “This work will help us ensure a safe and even surface for traffic. We will do all we can to ensure resident access is maintained.

“However, there may be times when access is prohibited for short periods of time. We apologise for any inconvenience this work may cause and thank residents and motorists for their patience.”
