A section of pipe which forms part of the Yorkshire Water works along Bridlington beach has collapsed.

Yorkshire Water contractors Mott MacDonald Bently (MMB) were last week working to repair the short sea outfall at Bridlington North Beach.

The repair work is expected to take five weeks and the 20-metre section of pipe and wooden supports will be replaced.

A spokesperson for Yorkshire Water said: “MMB will be erecting a site compound on the North Bay promenade but access

will be maintained for pedestrians and the land train.

“They will need to occupy around 10 parking spaces for the duration of the work. We expect that the repairs will take around five weeks to complete. Traffic and vehicle access to the promenade will be unaffected.”
