Drop-in session for public to view improvements to Queens Road/Sculcoates Lane junction

Residents are being invited to a drop-in session to find out more about the final phase of a £1.1million project to improve pedestrian and cycling facilities along Beverley Road.

The session will be held at Beverley Road Baths on Wednesday 12 July, from 10am-7pm, and will provide an opportunity for people to view the plans for the Queens Road/Sculcoates Lane Junction and to find out more information about the planned works, which will include:

  • Controlled pedestrian crossing facilities across Beverley Road and Queens Road. 
  • Cycle lanes through the junction, connecting the existing northbound and southbound cycle lanes already in place. 
  • Refresh of road markings within the junction. 
  • Repairs to existing raised plant bed on the north eastern side of Beverley Road. 
  • Councillor Mark Ieronimo, portfolio holder for transportation, roads and highways, said: “The drop-in session is a chance for members of the public to view the proposed improvements to the Queens Road/Sculcoates Lane Junction and ask any questions they might have ahead of work beginning on site in August. “We know from speaking to residents in the area that controlled pedestrian crossings on Beverley Road and Queens Road have been a priority and we are pleased to be able to deliver these.”

    The improvements to the Queens Road/Sculcoates Lane Junction are the final phase of works in a much larger scheme which, when complete, will have seen more than 5km of Beverley Road revamped to create a safer environment for cyclists travelling along this main route into the city as well as better crossing facilities for pedestrians, enhancing the travel choices for those using Beverley Road.

    The project was funded through an award of £2.7m from the Government’s Getting Building Fund and was allocated to Hull City Council by the Hull & East Yorkshire LEP to deliver improved cycle links in the region.

    For those who are unable to attend the drop-in session, the plans can also be viewed here: Queens Road - Sculcoates Lane - Beverley Road Junction Improvements.pdf

    Work will start on site from Tuesday 1 August and is anticipated to take around five weeks to complete.

    The work will be undertaken by local contractor, PBS Construction (N.E) Ltd.
