The government has announced more than £3M for repairs to a 300-year-old bridge damaged by floods just after Christmas.
Transport minister Robert Goodwill said the funding had been set aside for restoration of Tadcaster Bridge in North Yorkshire.
This comes on top of £40M pledged by ministers to repair flood defences following Storm Eva.
Goodwill said: “The floods in Yorkshire have been devastating for residents and businesses across the county and we have seen the partial collapse of the Tadcaster bridge split the community in two.
“We have made the repair of the bridge a national priority and I am pleased to announce that today we are providing £3.3M to restore this important route.”
A temporary footbridge is to be put in place while work takes place on the main Tadcaster bridge.
