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.
SCOPE OF THE WORKS:
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:
CHALLENGES & SOLUTIONS
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.
