A63 Castle Street improvements

Closed 13 Feb 2017

Opened 16 Jan 2017

Overview

Highways England is proposing to relieve congestion and provide better access to the Port of Hull by improving the A63 Castle Street. This 0.9 mile stretch of dual carriageway between Ropery Street and the Market Place/Queen Street junction carries around 45,000 vehicles per day and as a result, the road suffers from congestion, particularly at peak times.

Full details of our proposals are available in the consultation brochure and you can let us know what you think by completing the online questionnaire.

The A63 acts as a barrier between the city centre to the north and the leisure facilities and dock areas to the south. Our proposed improvements will create a better connection between the two areas and, once completed, the scheme will also improve safety for road users and the local community.

In 2013, a consultation exercise was held which presented our proposed road improvements in more detail. Since 2013, we have taken on board your comments and undertaken additional environmental and traffic assessments to ensure our plans are robust.

We are consulting again to obtain your views on the changes we have made since 2013. As four years have elapsed we are taking the opportunity to re-consult on our proposals in case your views have changed.

This is your opportunity to provide comments on our proposals. The consultation runs for 28 days between 16 January and 13 February 2017. All responses to this consultation will be considered and where possible, may influence further refinements to the proposals.
