Improvements to pedestrian areas in the city centre have begun, with work starting today at The Interchange.
The third phase of the public realm work will see improvements to areas including Brook Street and Prospect Street and improve links with Paragon Interchange, St Stephen’s shopping centre, Prospect Centre and the Albion Square development.
The first start on site will be at the Interchange, which will be undertaken in phases to ensure public access is maintained.
Work to the steps and ramp leading to Hull’s Maritime Museum will also be carried out during this programme of improvements.
Hull contractor Ashcourt Group will carry out the £2.3m scheme. It is expected that the work will be completed in September 2020.
Similar improvements have already transformed key areas of the city centre including Queen Victoria Square, Whitefriargate, King Edward Street, Jameson Street, Humber Street, Humber Dock Street and Trinity Square.
