East Riding of Yorkshire Council will be undertaking essential maintenance and refurbishment works at Boothferry Bridge.

Due to technical requirements the works must be carried out in the Summer/Autumn months. It will take 10 weeks to complete works on the swing section, during this period the bridge will be scaffolded, wrapped with sheeting and unavailable for swings.

The refurbishment is required to ensure continued safe use of the bridge and will include works to the bridge control mechanism, structural painting, and footway repairs

Vessels not requiring a swing will still be able to pass the bridge, but skippers should contact the bridge operators in advance of passage to check available air draft by calling 01430 430256
