Whitby Swing Bridge To Close

Whitby Swing Bridge To Close

Published by Karen Liu at 6:01am 25th October 2019. (Updated at 10:17am 25th October 2019)

The swing bridge in Whitby is to be closed to vehicles during Goth Weekend this weekend for the safety of pedestrians.

On Saturday, 26 October and Sunday 27 October 2019 the bridge will be closed to traffic from 10.30am to 6pm.

Vehicles will be able to follow diversion signs for an alternative route between the east and west sides of Whitby.

It does not affect the use of the swing bridge by boats. 

The safety of pedestrians and road users is our first concern and it is expected that during Goth Weekend pedestrian numbers will escalate to a point where it isn’t safe for people and vehicles to use the bridge together safely.  

North Yorkshire County Council is apologising for any inconvenience caused, but says safety has to be their first consideration.
