More footpath improvement works planned for Hull  

Several streets across Hull will undergo essential resurfacing next month, to provide much-needed improvements to the footpaths.   

As part of the council’s investment in the city’s footpaths, improvements and resurfacing works will take place on Benedict Road, Chanterlands Avenue, Chester Road, Helmsley Grove, Hessle Road, Wascana Close, Luton Road, and Woodgate Road. 

The improvements will involve resurfacing and reconstructing areas of the footpaths which have deteriorated.  Once finished the newly improved footpaths will provide a safe and even surface for local residents.   

Works are scheduled to begin on Monday 6 November and are expected to take approximately 24 weeks to complete, weather permitting.    

Councillor Mark Ieronimo, Portfolio Holder for Transportation, Roads, and Highways at Hull City Council, said: “These works are essential to repair and maintain the surface of the footpaths, to stop them falling into poor condition.   

“As investing in our city’s pavements is one of my main priorities, I am very happy to see that we are on track to deliver a third more pavement improvements this year. 

“I am focused on ensuring all footpaths are safe and we know that residents will welcome the smooth new surfaces once they are completed.”   

The scheme will be funded by Hull City Council’s Capital Footway Programme and carried out by PBS Construction Limited on behalf of the Council.
