Drivers on the main A-road running through the city are facing long queues on Tuesday afternoon as traffic backs up on the A63. Motorists tackling Castle Street have been faced with bottleneck queues as congestion continues to plague the city's road network with a new layout to the route around the new Murdoch's Connection bridge. It comes in a repeat of last week's frustration as major thoroughfares faced gridlock, including Main Road, Hedon Road, Freetown Way, Beverley Road and Spring Bank. Hull City Council said there are “undoubtedly” more people on the city's roads – while summery weather will also be encouraging people out of their homes and on to the roads to reach destinations such as beaches and country parks.
