Valley Road will be closed for five days from today to enable scaffolding to be dismantled safely, as North Yorkshire County Council’s refurbishment of Valley Bridge finally draws to a close.

“We apologise for this inconvenience,” said North Yorkshire County Councillor Gareth Dadd, North Yorkshire’s Executive Member for Highways, “but we must make sure that the scaffolding is safely dismantled.

“The good news is that we are drawing to a close with this major refurbishment of Valley Bridge, which will serve to maintain this beautiful and historic emblem of the town in good condition.”

Work on the bridge, which started in September last year, had been due to be completed in February.
