A six-week project to improve a rail bridge in Yorkshire was completed in time for commuter services this morning.
Kier used the school holidays to undertake key stages of the £14M Selby Swing Bridge upgrade scheme.
Engineers replaced track, repaired steelwork, strengthened the bridge, improved its hydraulics and repainted it.
Network Rail area director Mark Tarry said: “This is the most significant improvement made to the bridge since it was built in 1889. Many parts of it will not need any further work for decades.
“Our engineers have worked around the clock to complete this work in the shortest possible timeframe and we thank passengers and local residents for their patience while it was carried out.
“An existing speed restriction on passenger services and a weight restriction for freight services can be lifted, improving the reliability of rail services on the route.”
