Progress report

Princes Quay Bridge artist's impression

We’re building a landmark pedestrian footbridge, accessible to cyclists and wheelchair users, crossing the A63 between Princes Dock to the north and Humber Dock (Hull Marina) to the south.

The bridge, which has received a funding contribution of £4 million by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership, is the first phase of the A63 Castle Street improvements scheme and will create better pedestrian links in Hull city centre.

Alongside this, we’re making improvements at Roger Millward Way (formerly known as Garrison Road). The existing junction will be improved with a ‘hamburger’ design, which provides a new road running through the middle of the roundabout creating the burger shape. This will ease congestion and improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists.

These two large projects will be co-ordinated and carried out together to cause the least disruption to the public on the A63. They will be carried out by the same contractor.

This also means that all work can be scheduled to minimise our overall time on site and make the best use of the funds available.

What's next?

The new bridge which is 60m long and weighs 150 tonnes is now in position across the A63 after it was wheeled into place 15 hours ahead of schedule.

Now the bridge is installed we’ll focus on the remaining work we need to do to complete the bridge which will include installing the ramps and steps, and completing the marina platform and landscaping.

The bridge, which is covered by a curving steel canopy, will also have sheltered viewing balconies at each end which will give people a space to enjoy the views of the city and waterfront. There will also be new landscaped public areas at both the Princes Quay and marina sides.

Why we need this scheme

The bridge is an important part of the A63 Castle Street improvement scheme which will allow pedestrians and cyclists to move freely across the A63.

The improvements at Roger Millward Way are needed to ease congestion and improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists.

The scheme in detail

The bridge scheme consists of:

  • access to improve crossing facilities for pedestrians, cyclists and disabled users over the A63
  • a landmark architectural design
  • enhanced public urban environment

The Roger Millward Way roundabout upgrade is a ‘hamburger’ type design consisting of:

  • full signalisation of the roundabout
  • construction of two lanes in either direction through the centre of the roundabout creating a ‘hamburger’ type design allowing the A63 to flow straight through the roundabout
  • improved pedestrian and cycle facilities

Aims

The bridge aims to:

  • help to support the local economy by better linking the city centre to the waterfront
  • be a landmark piece of infrastructure and architecture for the city of Hull
  • act as a safe pedestrian and cyclist route to cross the A63 during the main A63 Castle Street scheme work

The improvements at Roger Millward Way roundabout aim to:

  • reduce congestion and smooth the flow of traffic to improve travel times, making journeys more reliable
  • improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists by including upgrades to pedestrian and cycle facilities

Spurn Lightship

The Spurn Lightship was moved to a mooring on the south-east side of Hull Marina on 5 September 2018 and will remain there for the duration of work on the bridge. This is because we’re building a platform that extends out into the marina to accommodate the southern access ramps where the Spurn Lightship was previously moored.

A video below shows the ship being moved.

The vessel will stay moored within the marina until 2021 and it is planned that it will receive specialist conservation to ensure its long-term preservation. The vessel will then be moved to a new permanent home in Hull Marina. You can keep up to date on the Spurn Lightship on Hull City Council’s website.
