Bridlington footbridge to be dismantled - expect noise and disturbance

The footbridge has been closed since January

Work to remove a dangerous footbridge over the railway line in Bridlington will begin later this month.

The structure, linking Georgian Way and Bessingby Industrial Estate, has been closed since the start of the year because an inspection found ‘significant signs of wear and tear’.
A letter has now been sent out to people living nearby telling them work will be carried out overnight, when trains are not running.

Preliminary work will start on October 29 and the bridge will be removed on November 3, 10 and 17 - starting at 11.30pm.

“As with all construction-related work, some noise and disturbance is inevitable, however measures will be put in place to minimise this,” the letter says.

Parking restrictions will be in place on Georgian Way and George Street on November 16, 17 and 18, to allow cranes to access the site.
