COTTINGHAM: Engineers from Northern Gas Networks will be carrying out essential repairs at the roundabout of Newgate Street/Priory Road, from 7pm on Thursday.
One lane of the roundabout will be closed to traffic, which is likely to cause rush-hour delays.
A Northern Gas Networks spokesman said: "Traffic will not be able to turn left from Priory Road on to Newgate Street, and instead will need to follow a short, signposted diversion.
"Motorists who use this route are advised to add a few minutes to their journey times.
"We would like to thank motorists for bearing with us during this essential repair work.
"Roadworks are never welcome, especially in a busy traffic spot, but this repair is essential to maintain a safe and reliable gas supply.
"We will be working as quickly as we can to get the lane reopen."
Engineers are hopeful work will be completed by teatime on Friday.
HULL: Members of the city council's planning committee were meeting today to discuss plans to build flats on the western end of St Andrew's Dock.
East Yorkshire developer Manor Property Group submitted plans to build student accommodation on the former fish dock in April.
Under proposals, 1,231 student flats would be built in six apartment blocks around a restored dock to create a so-called "maritime campus".
The dock itself would not be reopened for boats. Instead, it would be redesigned as a large water feature.
