Building work on a multi-million pound scheme to improve Hull's busiest road will begin in March 2020, the Transport Secretary has confirmed.
Hull West and Hessle MP Emma Hardy has revealed she has been given direct assurances over the A63 Castle Street underpass by Chris Grayling.
It comes after the £250million scheme, which involves the creation of an underpass at Mytongate and a new footbridge, was delayed for a fourth time earlier this year. Work to build the footbridge connecting the marina with the city centre is however due to start next year.
In a letter to the MP, Mr Grayling outlined the timetable for the work but stated there are a number of technical issues to iron out before an order to proceed is formally submitted next summer.
