The Gallery | Half-term bridge deck replacement in York

Half-term isn’t a break for everyone - engineers in York have been working 24 hours a day to replace the deck of a rail bridge.

No trains can run over Scarborough Rail Bridge from Saturday 14 February until the early hours of Monday 23 February while the work is carried out.

Network Rail route managing director Phil Verster said: “We thank rail passengers for their patience as we complete this essential work.

“The bridge has given good service for 140 years but now needs significant replacement.

“This is a complex project as the bridge spans the River Ouse and is in the middle of a residential area with narrow streets as well as being close to several important rail lines.”
