North Yorkshire County Council bridges team will begin the work on Monday, June 28, which will take around two weeks.

Councillor Mike Chambers, member for Ripon North, said: “The maintenance to this well-used bridge will involve replacing the expansion joints and surfacing works to remove the depressions at each end of the bridge.

“The work will be carried out overnight to minimise disruption as much as possible. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.”

The work will take place from 6pm to 6am using four-way traffic lights. Operatives working on site will be observing all Government guidelines on safe social distancing.
