Video LoadingVideo UnavailableA major part of the A63 remains closed as a new footbridge is moved into place. The new 150-tonne bridge is being moved into its final destination over the A63 Castle Street, linking the city centre with Hull Marina. The bridge itself was put into place on Saturday night but there is plenty of work to be done before the road is due to reopen on Monday. The closure is allowing Highways England contractors to move the 150-tonne structure from the Myton retail park car park where it has been assembled over the past few months to its final destination between the southern end of Princes Dock and the Marina. Two giant remote-controlled transporters are being used to carry the 60 metre-long bridge the short distance along the A63 before swinging it into position. The new bridge over the A63 Castle Street Drivers are being asked to find alternative routes as the major operation takes place, which will include removing street lights, roads signs and guard rails, as well as installing extra safety fencing.
