Scarborough Bridge - Upgrade and Closures

The Upgrade

The Scarborough Bridge Upgrade project consists of building a new, wider bridge across the River Ouse near to the centre of York, adjacent to the existing Scarborough-line railway bridge. 

The Upgrade includes:

  • Widening of the bridge deck from 1.3 meters to 3.6 meters.
  • A ramp linking the southern approach directly to the Station.
  • Ramps on the Northern approach to allow easier cycle use and provide accessibility for people using buggies, scooters and wheelchairs.
  • Stair access will also remain available.

See York: Scarborough Bridge for more information.
