Steel walkway will allow visitor access to restored Hull light vessel

Posted on by in News

Being fabricated and installed by AJ Engineering & Construction Services (AJE), a new walkway will allow visitors to access the historic Spurn Light Vessel in Hull.

Following a 14-month restoration project, the lightship is currently docked at a temporary berth in Hull Marina.

It is being restored as part of the Hull Maritime project, and the vessel will return to use as a floating museum once a new dock has been completed.

The project is being delivered by Hull City Council and funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. AJE has been contracted by main contractor Spencer Group.

AJE Project Manager Kevin Smith said: “Our part in this development is relatively small, but the whole regeneration scheme is massive, so it’s great to be involved one way or another. It has huge historical significance in Hull’s maritime history and is a fascinating project.”
