Work on the new £25 million East Riding Leisure Bridlington development – on the seafront site of the former Leisure World facility– has entered a new phase with construction starting on the new roof.

The roof works will continue until July, alongside other works on the site. After completion of the roof deck over the new swimming pool hall, the new pools will start to take shape from May onwards.

The steel frame is still under construction for the main sports hall, with most of the steel work scheduled for completion in May.

The roofing and steel erection are being carried out by the council’s contractor, BAM Construction.

On a recent visit to the site, Councillor Stephen Parnaby OBE, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “It’s very exciting to see that the next phase of the construction is now under way, and to see so much progress on this site. When open in the summer of 2016, this new state of the art leisure complex will transform leisure and fitness in Bridlington, giving residents and visitors alike facilities they can be truly proud of.

“I’m delighted that this council has been able to invest in the area in facilities which will enhance not only the town, but also the health and wellbeing of its residents.”
