WORK to refurbish the bridge which provides access from Vincent Pier to the Lighthouse Pier at Scarborough Harbour has been completed.

The Sydney Smith bridge is operated on demand from the Watch-keeper’s tower on the West Pier and was replaced around 10 years ago.

The parapet railings have been replaced along with all the railings on the adjacent Lighthouse Pier and Vincent Pier associated with the bridge.

The new railings are similar in design and appearance as the previous railings but are made of mild steel that is hot dip galvanised with white plastic coating finish.

Cllr Mike Cockerill, Scarborough Council’s cabinet member with responsibility for Harbours, Land and Project Management said: “Scarborough Harbour users specifically requested that harbour monies be spent on this important harbour infrastructure and it is now in tip top condition for the season when visitors will be making trips across it to have a look at the lighthouse.”
