Work Starts Next Week On Improving Critical Junction

Next week, work will begin to improve the junction of Road, Clough Road and Cottingham Road.

Residents had the opportunity to share their thoughts on the improvement plans during the drop-in session last week.

There was a concern raised by a local resident that pedestrian crossing timings outside the Haworth Arms pub on Beverley Road did not take into account motorists turning right from Clough Road.

As a result, in order to allow pedestrians to cross the busy intersection safely, the signals have been amended.

Councillor Mark Ieronimo, Portfolio Holder for Transportation, Roads, Highways, said:

“The value of making time to listen to residents and seeking their feedback is evident. By speaking to who use this junction regularly and making the most of their knowledge, we are able to deliver a scheme which is better than originally planned.

“As a result, these amendments have been incorporated to improve pedestrian safety at this busy junction.”

The busy junction will undergo phased roadworks beginning on Monday, 1 August.  

The works will include –

  • Adjustments to the start of the northbound bus lane just north of Beresford Avenue, to enable drivers to manoeuvre around a waiting right-turning vehicle without having to enter the bus lane
  • Amendments to the pedestrian refuge island on Beverley Road south of Clough Road to aid traffic flow
  • Extension of the southbound bus lane on Beverley Road south of the junction, to start 20m north of its existing position
  • Work to make cycling through the junction safer

There will be some traffic management in place so the work can take place safely.

There will be a closure of the right turn filter lane on Beverley Road for motorists heading northbound from Monday 1 August to Monday 22 August, and the existing straight-on lane will be converted into a right turn lane. In the left lane, motorists will be directed straight on and left.

Across Beresford Avenue and Clough Road, the left-hand lane will be closed, but parking bays will remain open.

And from Monday 8 August to Monday 22 August temporary four-way lights will be in operation from 7.30pm – 11pm.

Hull City Council was awarded £2.2m through a joint bid from the Government’s Getting Building Fund, allocated by HEY LEP as part of the Government’s commitment to the Northern Powerhouse.
