East Riding of Yorkshire Council is reminding motorists that it is to carry out essential specialist inspection works on the bridge over the Dutch River at Rawcliffe Bridge, beginning on Monday, 23 October, and scheduled to last for four weeks.
In order for the specialist inspection works to be carried out safely and efficiently, the bridge will have to be closed to all traffic throughout this period. Pedestrians and cyclists will still be able to use the bridge, although cyclists will have to dismount. All road vehicles will have to follow the signed diversion route that will be put in place.
East Yorkshire Motor Services route number 88 will continue to run, but will follow the diversion route during this period. A shuttle bus will be provided for the part of the journey between Rawcliffe and Rawcliffe Bridge.
An East Riding of Yorkshire Council spokesperson said: “We apologise for the inconvenience this closure will cause, but ask motorists to bear with us whilst we take the necessary steps to try to ensure the long-term future of this bridge.”
