The park and ride scheme in Whitby will open on Good Friday, the county council has confirmed.

Although the bus service will be operational from next Friday, work to complete the terminal building and overflow car park will take longer to complete.

“I very much welcom the opening of this long-anticipated scheme, said County Councillor Joe Plant. “Tourism is the key to Whitby’s continued prosperity and this is a major step forward.”

Parking restrictions in Whitby and Sandsend will not come into force until May 1, while the A171 Guisborough Road will be closed at the Park and Ride site overnight on Monday 14 April for surfacing work.
