Repair work to be carried out to West Ella Road Bridge over the A164

Fri, 15 Mar 2019

Repairs are to be carried out to a bridge over the A164 Beverley to Humber Bridge road after damage was caused by high-sided lorries striking the structure.

Work on West Ella Road Bridge, near West Ella, is due to be carried out over five consecutive nights, starting on Monday 25 March.

The work, costing around £10,000, will involve repairing broken concrete and damaged strands of reinforcement on the outer edges in the middle of the bridge.

To enable the work above the road to be carried out safely, the A164 underneath the bridge will need to be closed between 8pm and 5am each night from Monday 25 March to Friday 29 March.

A signed diversion via the A164, A1105 and B1232 through Willerby, Anlaby and Hessle will be put in place during those hours.

The repair work is to be carried out by council contractor CR Reynolds.

Dave Waudby, head of infrastructure and facilities at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “We’ve scheduled this work to be carried out overnight to avoid major delays and disruption this could cause during the daytime.

“We’d like to thank motorists for their patience while this work is carried out.”
