North Yorkshire County Council has released this statement regarding the Selby Toll Bridge refurbishment:
Work to replace the decking on Selby Toll Bridge is scheduled to begin on Sunday, 3 February.
County Councillor Don Mackenzie, Executive Member for Access, said: “This is part of our ongoing programme and follows a full survey of the bridge in December. We will replace all the surface timber, waterproof the timber below the deck and carry out other essential maintenance.”
The work is expected to be complete within three weeks, but this is dependent on the weather and any unforeseen defects below the timber deck boards.
The bridge will be closed to vehicles during the work. A diversion will be signed and a revised route for the bus service will be in place. Access for pedestrians will be maintained at all times.
