New Design of Whitby West Pier Footbridge Revealed

New Design of Whitby West Pier Footbridge Revealed

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 10:36am 2nd March 2012.

A new design for the Whitby West Pier footbridge has been revealed.

It will be made from Ekki timber from tropical West Africa, which will appear a bit more red at first, compared to the old Baltic Pine but should be harder wearing.

The bridge will also be one step lower and can be lifted out for maintenance.

The handrail design will be slightly changed but it will not be a big change from the previous design.

A steel tressle made up of three columns to support the bridge will be hidden underneath the pier extension to take the weight and will be painted to blend in.

English Heritage have to give their views on the design to Local Government Minister Eric Pickles who will then take the final decision.

You can get a look at the plans for the design below:
