Infrastructure Legacy for Hull City of Culture 2017

2016-10-12 10:00:00 +0100 by Miriam Heale


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.
