As Hull looks forward to celebrating its tenure as UK City of Culture in 2017, the team behind its delivery are also planning for its infrastructure legacy.

A ten-year Cultural Strategy 2016-2026 has been launched in a bid to sustain the economic boom, which has already produced some significant projects, including a series of offshore wind manufacturing plants built by Siemens (£310m) at Alexandra Dock;  the £200m Energy Works development opened by Spencer Group, RB's £100m investment in a research and development centre and the University of Hull putting £90m towards new facilities.

With a £2.6m legacy fund already established by Hull City Council and the Hull 2017 Company, further infrastructure projects look set to include a £50m investment to build a cruise terminal and the delivery of the £194m Highways England scheme to improve the A63.
