HULL: Queens Gardens police station, pictured, will close to the public tomorrow after more than 50 years.
Members of the public will instead have to go to the Osborne Street police station, which opens for the first time at 7am on Monday.
The new £1.5m station will be home to the Riverside neighbourhood policing team, which covers the city centre, licensing and public order officers.
The new £30m Clough Road police station has replaced Queens Gardens as the divisional headquarters for Hull.
Queens Gardens will remain a base for some police officers and staff until its sale.
Rich Kirven, chief inspector of operations for Hull, said: "It will be an historic day and quite a sad day in some respects when Queens Gardens closes for good, as it has been an excellent base for policing in the city for many years.
"The new station provides facilities fit for modern policing purposes. It will give officers, residents and visitors a much better environment."
A temporary telephone line connecting to the Humberside Police command centre has been installed at Queens Gardens.
