SPEED LIMITS

SPEED LIMITS MAY VARY DEPENDING ON ROAD WORKS.

Southbound: When exiting the roundabout the current speed limit is 40mph. As the Open Road Toll lane approaches the speed limit decreases to 30mph through the toll plaza, as you reach the main flow of the Humber Bridge the speed limit increases to 50mph until the exit onto the national speed limit dual carriageway.

Northbound: When travelling from the A15 dual carriageway, the national speed limit applies. As you approach the Humber Bridge the speed limit decreases to 50mph, upon reaching the northside as the Open Road Toll lane approaches the limit decreases again to 30mph, once you’ve passed through the toll plaza the speed limit increases to 40mph leading on to the roundabout.

CURRENT OR UPCOMING MAINTENANCE WORKS

The Humber Bridge is over 40 years old and was designed to last for 120 years. As the bridge approaches the second part of its design life it requires more maintenance work to be completed.

Occasionally the maintenance tasks we carry out whilst caring for the Bridge require us to close parts to traffic or pedestrians. We may have to introduce traffic controls. We aim to keep disruption to a minimum, scheduling works for off-peak times. Scheduled maintenance activities, including any partial closures of the Humber Bridge, are listed below.

Works 1st to 4th May

We are continuing our essential maintenance on the Bridge’s expansion joints this weekend, starting at 7pm this evening (1st March) until the early hours of Monday morning (4th March).

During this time, there will be traffic management in place, in both directions, between the Southbound Toll Booths and just after Hessle Tower. Please note that you will still be able to cross the Bridge in either direction, and the Tag Lanes will remain open.

Please allow extra time for your journey if travelling during this time, and please drive carefully through the roadworks.
