Work is underway to bring a riot of colour to Hull Road dual carriageway with over 110,000 daffodils and 30,000 crocuses being planted, in a scheme funded by Labour’s Hull Road ward.
The key route into the city has been remarked on by residents in the ward, who say they think the central reservation would make an ideal place to brighten up York’s eastern approach to the city centre and Walmgate Bar.
Labour’s Hull Road ward councillor Michael Pavlovic said:
“We’re delighted to have been able to fund this excellent proposal through our ward budget on something that will be very striking and demonstrate the pride local residents have in their area.
“Not only have we funded this through the ward, but we have also funded the donation of thousands of bulbs to nearby Badger Hill Primary and Archbishop Holgate’s Secondary schools, to St Hilda’s Church in Tang Hall and to Badger Hill Playing Fields.
“All in all this will result in 150,000 daffodils and crocuses bringing some much needed colour to the ward over the Winter and Spring months ahead.
“I want to thank residents for their input and am sure they will be pleased with the results”.
