The bridge master at the Humber Bridge says it is necessary to have one lane of the southbound carriageway closed for 40 weeks for the safety of contractors working underneath it. Engineers will start work tomorrow on the A-frame supports. Peter Hill says he doesn't expect to see long delays:
Workmen have delayed until tomorrow the start of engineering work under the Humber Bridge which will mean a 40-week lane closure on the southbound carriageway. One lane will be coned off for the duration of the work which is necessary while work goes on underneath the structure.
Engineers are replacing part of the A-frame supports which are beneath the carriageway. One lane needs to be closed to reduce the load on the bridge while the contractors are on site. This is separate to the work underway to renew the toll booth plaza.

Midfielder Stephen Quinn (hamstring) and forward Sone Aluko (Achilles) are out but defender James Chester should be fit enough for the bench after two months on the sidelines.

Nine of the top 10 cities for jobs are in the South, while nine of the worst are in the North, said classified ad search engine Adzuna.
In some parts of the South, including Cambridge, Guildford, Reading and Oxford, there are twice as many vacancies as people looking for work, while in areas such as Hull, there are 20 people chasing each job, the research found.
The number of advertised construction vacancies has increased by almost a third in the past six months, with many of the biggest infrastructure projects, including Crossrail, creating jobs in the South of England.
Of the 55,663 construction vacancies advertised in October, almost half were in London and the South East.
By contrast, only 6% of advertised vacancies were in the North West, and just 3% were in the North East, said the report.
