Six months of roadworks looks set to cause a “nightmare” for Hull motorists on two major routes. Hull City Council has confirmed major improvements to the road surface in Anlaby Road and Hessle Road will start from Monday (September 28). The works on Hessle Road will consist of nine phases beginning with Coltman Street to Marmaduke Street for the first two weeks. The final phase will start from February 8, 2021 from Manchester Street to Liverpool Street with work expected to be completed by February 21. From North Road to Pickering Road (outbound) and Norland Avenue to Trinity House (inbound) will be part of the first phase along Hessle Road, taking five weeks to complete from September 28. The final section of the works will be completed on March 6 with resurfacing taking place from Melrose Street to Boothferry roundabout (outbound). Work will be carried out seven days a week with diversions put in place for buses and large vehicles. Smaller cars will be able to navigate their way around the roadworks by using the side streets. From Monday to Friday, work will be carried out from 7am to 7pm and from 8am to 7pm on Saturdays. Roadworks will be in effect for a six-hour period on Sundays from 10am to 4pm. Night time road closures will also be in effect in some phases during the work on Anlaby Road from 7pm to 6am. Generic photo of traffic in Anlaby Road Councillor Daren Hale said to minimise disruption the work is being done in phases but that it was “critical” for the roads to be resurfaced. Cllr Hale said: “We understand that over the next six months there will some congestion as these critical works take place, but this is why we are undertaking them in phases so that we can minimise disruption. “The works are taking place outside of the city centre, demonstrating the council’s overall commitment to expanding Hull’s transport network by investing in schemes to repair worn road surfaces.” Congestion has been seen in other parts of the city due to roadworks with motorists saying it has become a “nightmare”. Temporary lane closures have been put in place in Calvert Lane since August 24 as building work on a new medical centre adjacent to the Trinity Fields site is carried out. Work there is expected to be completed by October 11. Six months worth of road resurfacing has already begun in the east of the city with Holderness Road undergoing resurfacing until March 29.
