We have received an update from the contractors and the bridge is to be installed between the 15th and 21st of December.

We will update this notice with any further information that we receive.


Update on 20/04/2021:


Following the recent closure of Selby swing bridge, a further incident took place last Tuesday 13th April 2021 when a HGV hit the bridge whilst trying to cross it, despite the bridge being signed with a 3 tonne weight limit.

During a site inspection on Wednesday 14th April 2021 with CRT engineers the bridge failed to operate. CRT are working with partners and the local highways team to make it safe and plan a way forward. At this time CRT are looking at various options to get the canal open as soon as possible, however we are unable to give a date for this.

We will publish a further update on Friday 30th April 2021. The bridge will remain unavailable for operation in the meantime.

We apologise for the disruption this continues to cause.


Original message:


The Swing Bridge is out of balance and is unable to swing.

Contractors will be attending the site.

We will update the notice when further information is received.
