Message from NYCC Highways
Linton bridge will remain closed over the weekend while the river levels continue to drop, I will continue to provide regular updates as and when they are available.
We have instructed our contractor to install temporary concrete barriers at Ella Bridge due to drivers ignoring the closure now the water has receded. Ella Bridge has sustained visible damage during the floods and will require a full inspection which we hope will be complete as soon as possible. As you can appreciate due to the safety of road users this is necessary.
For information further signage is to be erected on the A19 to make it clearer to drivers Linton cannot be accessed via Newton on Ouse.
Thank you again for your support.
