More road closures confirmed for A63 Castle Street in Hull - including a full weekend

A full weekend and several overnight closures are on the horizon as a new junction on the A63 Castle Street in Hull takes shape.

National Highways is alerting drivers of the upcoming closures as works continue on the huge project. A new split-level junction, described as a "critical part of the upgrade", is being created by lowering the level of the A63 to create an underpass, with Ferensway and Commercial Road crossing the carriageway.

Overnight closures will begin just after the Bank Holiday weekend between Daltry Street and Roger Millward Way. Each of these will take place between 8pm and 6am the following day.


They will be carried out on the following dates:


Tuesday, May 28 to Saturday, June 1


Sunday, June 2 to Friday, June 7

Monday, June 10 to Friday, June 14

Monday, June 17 to Friday, June 21

Thursday, June 27 and Friday, June 28

Weekend closure

There will also be a full weekend closure to allow the next stages of the work to be carried out safely. This will be in place between Daltry Street and Roger Millward Way from 8pm on Friday, June 14 until 6am on Monday, June 17.

However, the westbound carriageway will remain open until 10pm on the Friday due to the Hull KR v Huddersfield Giants rugby league fixture. Meanwhile, supporters attending Hull FC v Leeds Rhinos the following day are being advised the city centre is "likely to be busier than usual" and fans travelling eastbound "are advised to follow signed matchday parking routes to the MKM Stadium, exiting the A63 before the Daltry Street diversion route and the city centre".

National Highways project manager Michael Upshon said: “The excavation of the underpass is progressing well, and we’ve made a lot of progress with overnight works being carried out over the last few weeks.

“This planned weekend closure is essential to allow us to complete specialist works as quickly and safely as possible, while also limiting disruption and avoiding closures during weekdays at peak times for drivers in Hull.”

“The machinery we’re using is required to be carefully assembled on site and then taken down and that does mean we need to close both carriageways.”
