ESSENTIAL maintenance work is set to start on Brompton Station Bridge in Northallerton next week.

North Yorkshire County Council’s bridges team will begin the work on Monday, August 2.

The scheme is expected to take four weeks.

Councillor David Hugill, member for North Hambleton division, explained what the work will entail.

He said: “The essential maintenance to Brompton Station Bridge will involve replacing the badly eroded parapet stones, repointing the entire sandstone structure and repairing the arch barrel.

“We are carrying out the work during the school holidays to minimise disruption for the nearby school, however, we apologise in advance for any inconvenience.”

For the first two weeks the bridge will be closed to vehicles and pedestrians.

During the second two weeks the bridge will be open as normal.

Advance warning signs will be in place and there will be a signed diversion route.

Motorists are advised to plan their route accordingly during the month-long works.

Full details of the diversion can be found on North Yorkshire County Counsil’s website, following the link
