Balfour Beatty has won a £75m contract to improve 1.5km of the A63 road in Hull

The A63 road scheme

The firm was appointed to the A63 Castle Street Hull improvement scheme for the Highways Agency under an Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) design and build contract.

The 1.5km scheme in the centre of Hull aims to improve journey times for road users through conversion of a major interchange into a split level junction with a two-lane dual carriageway carrying east-west traffic below north-south traffic in a new 400 metre underpass.

The scheme will also include two new bridges, which will link the south and north of the city for pedestrians, cyclists and disabled users.
