Anlaby Road (City Boundary to Walton Street) Resurfacing Works

  • Client: Hull City Council
  • Location: Anlaby Road, Hull
  • Value: £2.4m
  • Period: October 2020 – April 2021


We were appointed by Hull County Council to carry out major improvement works to improve the routes for motorists at Anlaby Road, the main arterial route leading into Hull City Centre situated within an urban residential area. The dual carriageway is a critical bus route, combined with a number of retail, local businesses and several schools upon the approach into the centre. A live railway bridge also runs over the middle section of the road.


Measuring a total length of 1.4 miles, the programme was split into 22 phases over a 25-week duration. The scope of works consisted of:

  • Planning the existing flexible road and re-surfacing works, including SAMI layer
  • Joint repairs to concrete bays within lower pavement construction
  • Excavation of failed concrete bays and replacement with fibre reinforced concrete
  • Carriageway widening works
  • Renewal of carriageway gullies, including jetting existing connections
  • Kerb, channel, and edging replacements
  • Cycle lane widening (requiring line removal by high pressure water works to remove the existing line marking)
  • Installation of anti-skid, road markings and installation of passive bollards
  • Pedestrian guardrail replacement
  • Reconstruction of existing footpaths.


There were many levels challenges on site and the scheme was on a busy urban location on Little Coates Road which is During the works an unforeseen longitudinal crack was discovered in the centre of the main section of the existing pavement, a total length of 150m, which crossed between running lanes. This presented a challenge to our proposed methodology as it compromised the safe working zone, as a result the team were unable to achieve the 0.5m clearance from live traffic. Working effectively with Hull City Council we requested an emergency road closure, this collaborative approach enabled swift agreement and implementation within 24 hours, avoiding significant delays to the programme.


Works were completed with zero incidents and, despite scope increase, completion was achieved ahead of the agreed programme with zero defects at handover.
