Stamford Bridge repairs project starts today.

An essential repair scheme is to be carried out to strengthen the historic road bridge at Stamford Bridge following years of damage to its parapets.

A £350,000 repair scheme to improve road safety on the Grade II listed structure is due to begin on Monday 20 May and will run for between eight to 10 weeks. As part of the project, the single-lane bridge controlled by traffic lights – which carries the A166 over the River Derwent will be closed to all traffic. A temporary, signed diversion will be put in place for traffic travelling along the popular Driffield to York route for the duration of the project.

The neighbouring footbridge will stay open during the work.

As part of the repair scheme, rows of stone bricks on parapets on both sides of the bridge will be replaced by similar local stone, sourced from Whitby, and the walls will be strengthened. Warning bollards will also be installed on approach to the bridge to indicate its width with the aim of preventing further strikes.
