Carr Lane improvements to continue - 26/10/16
The final stage of the scheduled improvements to Carr Lane will begin this weekend.

Carr Lane will be closed from 9pm on Friday 28 October, until 5am on Monday 31 October as work is undertaken to lay the final road surface. This is the next phase in the upgrade of the road, which began in March 2016, as part of the redevelopment of Hull city centre's public realm. The final road surface will be finished with a contemporary buff-coloured surfacing that will tie in with the high-quality granite paving on the pedestrian areas.

Buses will be temporarily diverted via Brook Street and Ferensway:

  • EYMS services will run inbound services from Beverley Road and Spring Bank direct to the Interchange via Brook Street
  • Anlaby Road services will travel via Brook Street and Ferensway direct to Anlaby Road
  • Services 57,1E &1D will use the Cenotaph for services
  • Stagecoach north Hull inbound services that normally serve Carr Lane will operate via Brook Street and west Hull services will divert via Ferensway

    Councillor Martin Mancey, Portfolio Holder with responsibility for transport and highways, said:

    ""This is one of the final pieces in the wider jigsaw of the essential public realm improvements, designed to reconstruct Carr Lane on a sound foundation that will last for many years.

    ""The council is determined to create a thriving city centre that residents and businesses can be proud of and we appreciate the patience of everyone throughout this time.""

    Bus stops and lay-bys will also be resurfaced in a different harder-wearing material designed to withstand the impact of buses braking and pulling away from the stops. This material requires seven days to cure so the Monument Bridge bus stop will be temporarily relocated from its current position to in front of the
    Ferens Art Gallery, and will remain there from Monday 31 October until services finish running on Sunday 6 November. It will return to Monument Bridge on Monday 7 November.

    Councillor Mancey continued:

    ""We would like to thank the bus companies and businesses for their patience, as it is vital that we do this work which will see the return of both east and westbound bus services by the end of November.""
