The new Princes Quay Bridge and work at Roger Millward Way roundabout will improve access and make it easier for pedestrians, cyclists and disabled users to cross the A63.
At Roger Millward Way, an extra lane will be added through the middle of the roundabout and additional traffic signals will help to reduce congestion and smooth the flow of traffic.
Highways England Senior Project Manager James Leeming said: “It’s great news that we’ll be starting work on these two key schemes in October. The steel bridge has been designed to allow further development around the waterfront and is an important part of Hull’s plans for the future.
“We’re carrying out these schemes together under one contractor to minimise disruption and to make the best use of the funds available.”
The bridge is being part-funded with a £4M contribution awarded to Hull City Council by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership.
It will reunite the Marina with the city centre by connecting the heart of the city to its thriving waterfront, and is a critical element of our long-term regeneration plans.
The single-span bridge is expected to be finished by early 2020 and work on Roger Millward Way is expected to take around nine months to complete.
