Train passengers are being warned to expect disruption to services around Selby from later this month when major engineering work takes place on the town's swing bridge. £14m is to be spent on the most significant upgrade to the structure since it was built in 1889.
Steelwork needs to be repaired with sections of the bridge being replaced and strengthened and it will also be given a new coat of paint. The hydraulics will be improved and a new track will be laid across the bridge with new walkways and steps for bridge operators.
Work will start on Friday 26 July with a new timetable in operation. Services are due to return to normal on Monday 8 September. During the upgrade some trains will be diverted and others will be replaced by buses.
