Bubwith Bridge is Open!

BUBWITH BRIDGE OPEN 9AM TODAY – from East Riding of Yorkshire Council
We are delighted to announce that the Bubwith bridge repair scheme is completed and the bridge will be open once again from 9am today (Tuesday 10 October).
The scheme has been completed almost two weeks ahead of schedule.
Councilor Paul West, the council’s portfolio holder for environment and transport, said:
“We are absolutely delighted to be able to reopen this bridge almost two weeks early.
“I’m sure the residents of Bubwith and the surrounding area are extremely pleased the work is finished and the bridge can finally reopen to traffic.
“We had no option but to close the bridge to carry out these repairs and I want to thank the local residents and local drivers for being very patient with us while the work was carried out.
“We know this has been a difficult time for them, but they have been very supportive and understood this was about making the bridge safe again for years to come.
“I want to commend our civil engineering team and our contractors Esh Construction for being so accommodating and carrying out an impressive repair scheme in a shorter time frame.”
The bridge was officially opened by a delegation including the civil engineering teams from Esh Construction, East Riding of Yorkshire Council and both local and parish councillors.
