Latest information… 2pm and I have just been informed that the dive team which were due back today to try and assess the bridge will not be arriving. Unfortunately the earliest that the team will be able to dive again is this coming Sunday. This means that the bridge will NOT be open until after Sunday. Please continue to use the alternative routes provided as you will not be able to cross the bridge into Tadcaster any time soon.
At 1pm today the Highways Agency arrived to start work on the surface damage to the bridge, but even after this work is completed it is unlikely that the bridge will open before the dive team has made a better evaluation of any problems below the waterline.
12:00Noon, surveyors arrived to conduct a visual bridge assessment over the river Wharfe…
About 30 minutes ago (9:30) the dive survey team arrived to assess the bridges structural damage. More news to follow soon…
As of 11am the bridge in Tadcaster remains CLOSED. The dive team experienced massive undercurrents whilst inspecting the bridge which prevented the underwater survey from being completed. The subsidence to the road over the bridge is due to be inspected by engineers later today but the outlook for the bridge opening any time soon is not good…
Contrary to Facebook and BBC reports – Tadcaster Bridge Remains CLOSED Until Further Notice so please save yourself the time and use the alternate routes provided.
