Hull City Council statement:
Following excavation works for the ongoing Wawne Road carriageway repairs, further structural repairs are required to the Foredyke Bridge. Until this work is carried out the bridge will be closed to traffic for public safety reasons.
Until this essential work is complete, the bridge will remain closed until September 2018.
The current diversion utilising the emergency link road will remain in place until the bridge can be opened. We ask that motorists are patient and apologise in advance for any disruption caused during this extended period of works.
