A63 Castle Street, Hull: £75m scheme contractor named
- 8 August 2014
- From the section Humberside
A contractor has been announced for a £75m improvement scheme to the A63 in East Yorkshire.
Balfour Beatty will start the Castle Street scheme in 2016/17.
The 0.9 mile (1.5 k) scheme in Hull city centre aims to improve journey times with a new underpass and two new pedestrian bridges over the road.
The plan is to lower the road into a cutting at Mytongate Junction so Ferensway and Commercial Road can pass over it.
The route is an important link between the M62, Humber Bridge and the city's port, the Highways Agency said.
