Closure of Marfleet Lane flyover in Hull delayed by a week

Marfleet Lane flyover will be closed for approximately five weeks from August 22.

A key Hull road will be closed for over a month for £180,000 'strengthening works' on a flyover. However, the closure has been delayed by a week and will now start on Monday, August 22.

Marfleet Lane flyover will be closed to all road users and pedestrians for about five weeks. Work on site will take place between 7.30am and 5.30pm, Monday to Friday. The closure had been due to start today (August 15), but has been put back, the council said.

Signed diversion routes will be in place during the closure and Hull City Council has said the works have been arranged to take place during school holidays to minimise disruption. The flyover needs to be strengthened so that it continue to carry the weight and types of traffic that use it.

The work will involve "major alterations" to the superstructure and the carriageway's full reconstruction. Andy Burton, Hull City Council's assistant director for Streetscene, said: "We want to make sure Hull’s roads are safe for everyone who uses them, which is why we are carrying out these repairs to Marfleet Lane flyover.

"Unfortunately, this will involve a diversion, as this is the only way to carry out this type of work.

"To minimise disruption, we have arranged the works to coincide with school holidays and co-ordinated with those being undertaken by National Highways on the A63.

"As ever, we ask for your cooperation and thank you for your patience." Galliford Try Infrastructure Limited have been awarded the contract for the works, estimated to cost just under £182,000.

Separately, Leads Road, Hull, will also be partially closed between 7am on Saturday, August, 13, and midnight on Sunday, August 14 for resurfacing of the carriageway between Bandstand Roundabout and Rotterdam Road. A signed diversion will be in place via Holwell Road and Sutton Road.

It marks the latest phase in the improvement works in Leads Road after footpaths at the western end recently received a full upgrade. Andy Bell, Hull City Council's head of highways infrastructure, said: "We understand this work will cause some disruption for road users and residents, and we apologise in advance for that.

"However, undertaking this work under a full closure for a single weekend is the best way to do this quickly and safely and get the road reopened. We know that motorists and residents are keen to see the Stoneferry Corridor Project finished, and the good news is that the end is within sight.

"We look forward to bringing this project to completion so all road users can enjoy the full benefits of this major investment in our city’s road network."
