A new bridge for Christmas?

In a memo received from North Yorkshire County Council today it was revealed that the bridge damage on section C92 between Linton and Newton was more serious than first thought.

Efforts to pile drive the new section required more work than initially anticipated, due to the extent of the damage incurred. The pile driving was completed on schedule at the end of October and it remains to compact the new surface and instate drainage to the affected section. However, despite these setbacks the works are expected to be completed by Christmas.

Thankfully Santa’s preliminary trip to Linton Village Hall on Saturday 24th November before Christmas remains unaffected. A memo received from Santa has revealed that he will be arriving by Sleigh via the runway at R.A.F. Linton on Ouse, although with a reduced set of reindeer staff, as he warms them up on a rotational basis in preparation for what looks set to be a busy Christmas Eve.
