Work to ease congestion in Hull is to be boosted by £760,000 worth of improvements in and around a busy city road.

The Humber Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has announced that part of Anlaby Road outside Hull Royal Infirmary will be made wider and Park Street bridge will be able to carry buses when it is strengthened and the weight restriction of 7.5 tonnes is removed.

Anlaby Road will be widened in the Rawling Way and Argyle Street area, meaning there will be two lanes for traffic heading west towards the flyover next to the KC Stadium. At the moment there is only one lane for vehicles after they have crossed the junction.

The improvements constitute a key development for Hull, according to city council leader Councillor Stephen Brady.

It will improve access to the city, ease congestion and make it safer for pedestrians to reach St Stephen’s and the Interchange, Councillor Brady says.
