We submitted a development consent order application for the scheme in September 2018 and further information on the application and the process can be found on the Planning Inspectorate‚Äôs website. Consultation with affected people will continue throughout the planning process.
The scheme boundary can be found under the media and documents section.We've also started building the landmark pedestrian footbridge at Princes Quay, accessible to pedestrians, cyclists and wheelchair users, crossing the A63 between Princes Dock to the north and Humber Dock (Hull Marina) to the south. More information on this can be found on the Princes Quay Bridge webpage.
Our development consent order application is now being considered by the Planning Inspectorate and a decision by the Secretary of State is expected in early 2020.

Why we need this scheme
Mytongate junction restricts the flow of traffic along the A63, slowing journeys. This busy road has approximately 47,000 vehicles travelling along it each day. Delays at peak times cause problems for people and businesses. The A63 acts as a barrier between the city centre to the north and the retail and dock areas to the south. We need to create better connections between the two areas.
The scheme in detail
We plan to create a new junction by lowering the level of the A63 at Mytongate junction. Ferensway and Commercial Road would cross the A63 creating a split-level junction. Between Princes Dock Street and Market Place we propose to widen the eastbound carriageway to three lanes. We also plan to construct a new bridge over the A63 at Porter Street.
Completion of the scheme will provide:
- improved access to the Port of Hull
- congestion relief
- improved safety
- improved connections between the city centre to the north and developments, and tourist and recreational facilities to the south
Trinity burial ground
We've successfully completed archaeological investigations at Trinity burial ground. This work has been extremely important in helping us to plan for the construction of the Castle Street improvement scheme. The investigation has also provided a significant amount of historical information about the burial ground and Hull itself. To find out more, download our fact sheet.
Marina and north side of Castle Street
In March 2016 we started investigating parts of Hull‚Äôs medieval defences to understand more about the history of Hull and the people who lived here. Around 700 years ago, brick walls and ditches were built to protect the town from invaders, but these have since crumbled away or been removed. Our work aims to discover where the old walls were built. It also means that archaeologists can understand more about what they were made of and how they were constructed.
