Market Way has been closed due to a void in the road.

North Yorkshire County Council closed Market Way yesterday after a void was found below the concrete carriageway slab at the side of Scarborough Market Hall.

Highways area manager Richard Marr said: ”There are signs of a second void nearby where the road is showing signs of structural failure.

The road was closed yesterday

"Highways and Yorkshire Water are investigating and a camera survey is taking place today to determine the cause and what repairs may be needed.’’

Last week, a void had also appeared on Forge Valley Road, causing the road to close.
