NYCC Highways Update 19th January 2011

I am really pleased to advise that Ella Bridge has been inspected today and the Structures team have confirmed it is safe to reopen the C100 between Tollerton and Newton on Ouse. The Highways Officer is currently on his way to remove the signs and barriers.

Linton Bridge unfortunately cannot be inspected by the divers due to the undercurrent of the river. The Structures team have advised the river flow will be re-assessed tomorrow with the divers ready to carry out the inspection should it be safe to do so.

I would like to take this opportunity to apologise again for the inconvenience and disruption the Linton Bridge closure is causing to residents, businesses and the travelling public
