Roundabout way to make travel easier

Have your say

A £600,000 five-month scheme to modernise traffic and pedestrian crossing signals at a key roundabout in Hull gets under way today.

The work at Mytongate roundabout where the A63 Castle Street meets Ferensway is expected to be completed in March.

The Highways Agency, which operates the trunk road, says it will carry out all the work overnight between 7pm and 6am to avoid causing congestion.

There will be only single lane closures. Highways Agency project sponsor Phil Leng said: “We have planned the scheme carefully to limit any impact on people’s journeys.

“This work will make the roundabout safer for drivers and pedestrians alike and increase reliability, reducing the need for unplanned maintenance.

“Replacing the ageing equipment with more up-to-date technology will also help improve journey times through the junction.”
