WORK is underway to widen the pathways on Whitby’s swing bridge, and the North Yorkshire County Council’s Highways department say the work is going well.

Highways spokesman David Creek said: “They are cracking on and the weather has been fine so everything is going to plan and to schedule.

“We expect to be finished by the end of next week (18 March).”

The bridge is currently closed to traffic, although it remains open to pedestrians, except when total closure is unavoidable.

A diversion is in place around the A171 new bridge route.
