The council say this will improve car journeys for motorists using Rawlings Way and Hessle Road as a diversion route for the A63 works. In order to complete this work Hessle Road will be closed on Sunday 20 June from 10pm-4am to allow the technology to be installed. A signed diversion route will be in place for motorists. Once completed, these works will offer not only offer significantly improved travel options, but more reliable gas and electricity supplies across the city. Councillor Dean Kirk, portfolio holder for transportation, roads, highways and flood prevention, said: “Hull’s ambitious project to improve its transport system continues this week as essential major works take place across the city. “They include works at the A63 and Stoneferry Corridor and also critical utility repairs. “The works are being undertaken by organisations including Highways England, Northern Gas Networks and Hull City Council, with scheduled works from Northern Powergrid. “We understand that roadworks can be frustrating for motorists, however these works are essential if we are to improve our transport system for better and safer journeys in the future.
