Plans to improve cycling in the city were already under way as part of the Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP). However in June 2020 these plans were accelerated in line with the Government’s Emergency Active Travel Fund, designed to build on the cycling renaissance taking place across the country as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

As a result, parts of Hull have undergone a significant transformation to its cycling infrastructure. Cycle lanes are in place in -

  • Holderness Road
  • Spring Bank
  • Ferensway
  • Anlaby Road
  • Hessle Road
  • Freetown Way
  • Beverley Road

7am – 6.30pm bus lanes will stay in place.

In addition, research has shown 27% of greenhouse gases come from cars and vans.  

The Government’s Net Zero Strategy recognises that a change to greener and more sustainable transport is a key part in this.

In a bid to encourage walking and cycling and the ambition to become carbon neutral by 2030, Hull City Council rolled out plans to improve cycling facilities and offer sustainable travel options for everyone.
