We received the following notification today from North Yorkshire Highways:

North Yorkshire County Council will be undertaking highway maintenance at Hewick Bridge, located between Ripon Racecourse and Newby Hall turnoff.

The works are currently programmed to commence on Monday 22nd January 2018 and last for 8 Weeks, including weekends. Advanced warning signs will be erected at either side of the bridge from week commencing 8th January 2018 displaying up to date information regarding the closure.

The work is complex and as a consequence it is possible that some adjustment to this start date or the duration of the works may be necessary should unforeseen circumstances (such as significant weather events or emergencies on the highway network arise.)

Vehicular access will not be permitted throughout the works. Pedestrian access will not be permitted.
