Start date:  2019/20
Cost:  ¬£392.5 million
Status:  PLANNED
Type:  Major Scheme
End date:  2024/25
Programme:  

Progress report

We last consulted on the scheme in 2013 and since that time we have been developing the scheme further and completing additional environmental and traffic assessments.

We consulted again in January 2017 to obtain your views on the changes we have made since 2013, thank you to everyone who took part.

What next?

Following this consultation we will consider your responses as we develop the proposals further. Our Development Consent Order application will include a consultation report, which will provide a summary of responses from this consultation and the one held in 2013. These will outline how your responses have been taken into consideration in refining the scheme.

Following submission, a pre-examination stage will begin, when there is an opportunity for local community members to register as an interested party via the Planning Inspectorate website and request to take part in the examination process.

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 3 lanes. We also plan to construct 2 new bridges over the A63:
  • at Porter Street
  • a bridge in front of Princes Quay Shopping Centre

Aims

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

Archaeology

Trinity Burial Ground

We have 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. If you are interested in finding out more, download our fact sheet.

Marina and North side of Castle Street

We’re investigating parts of Hull’s medieval defences to help 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 will also mean that archaeologists can find out more about what they were made of and how they were constructed. The work near the Marina was completed in mid-March 2016.
