A village bridge that was damaged by a vehicle is to close to traffic for emergency repairs. East Riding Council is to carry out improvements to the bridge at Bubwith, on the A163 route between Holme On Spalding Moor and Selby, to strengthen the structure to make it safe for traffic over the winter. The bridge was damaged in September when a vehicle hit a stone parapet as it was crossing. At the time the council installed temporary barriers to make sure it could reopen to traffic. Now the authority is to carry out further work on the bridge, starting on Monday, November 7, which is expected to take three weeks, with a full closure taking place in the third week.
