Humber & Queen Street Carriageway & Footway Reconstruction Works

  • Client: Hull City Council
  • Location: Humber Street & Queen Street, Hull
  • Value: £480,000
  • Period: June 2021 – October 2021


The works comprised the reconstruction of the footpath using Hull City Council supplied natural aggregate concrete Kellen paving and also the replacement of kerbs including a section of HCC supplied granite kerbs and channels, and some concrete.

In addition, works also involved the installation of multiple new gullies (connected into the existing sewer) to provide adequate drainage.

A Belisha beacon pedestrian crossing, including speed calming carriageway table, was installed outside of the new Arco building entrance to provide a safe crossing point for pedestrians.

The whole length of carriageway was resurfaced from beneath Myton Bridge to the Queen Street junction, including deep reconstruction in failed areas. Surfacing works also included a section of Queen Street by the A63 traffic lights, which also required concrete repairs prior to laying the new surface.

In addition to the above, an isolated section of the Queen Street carriageway (towards the pier) was also resurfaced during the main carriageway works.

The kerbline was altered at the junction with Queen Street to accommodate the carriageway layout redesign. This removed the junction at Humber Street with Queen Street, with new give way markings installed from the Queen Street south approach to the junction.

The scheme also included the installation of the Heald bollard safety system at the entrance to the busy stretch of Humber Street containing bars and other businesses. The Matador sliding bollard system prevents unwarranted vehicle access while being able to be opened remotely to allow authorised access.
