With £355 million of investment across Hull’s roads, the major changes already taking place will transform the city’s connections, alongside our own highway improvements around the Yorkshire Energy Park.
We have worked closely with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Hull City Council and Highways England to develop a series of highway improvements in advance of the main business park development to future-proof our plans.
We have legally committed to ensuring the multi-million-pound programme of improvements to the A1033, which will include additional lanes and signalling to five junctions. The improvements will be delivered before the full business park becomes operational.
Improved footpaths and green walkways through the park; the need for dog walking routes, jogging and walking routes were highlighted during our consultation events and such, we have incorporated them throughout the development and along the northern boundary to ensure we link people physically with Hedon. We will also be contributing to improve the rail trail; a cycle path which runs between Hull and Holderness.
In addition to the physical measures, a Travel Plan Coordinator will be appointed to actively monitor and act on transport assessments, run initiatives to encourage more sustainable methods of travel and establish a cycle user group, lift-sharing and walk to work schemes.
