The project is designed to facilitate the development of the remaining 12 acres (5 hectares) of land at Henry Boot Way in West Hull (6 sites) of which approximately 8.5 acres of land are within the Enterprise Zones.
There are four proposed development schemes identified within Henry Boot Way. Currently the road network is close to capacity especially at peak times and the proposed development of these sites is predicted to generate additional car borne trips that would lead to increasing congestion on the network. This would result in traffic queuing on the slip roads and backing onto the Strategic Highway Network (A63) significantly increasing the risk of accidents occurring. Highways England is seeking the introduction of highway improvements to mitigate the impact of the predicted development traffic and to minimise the potential accident risk.
