East Riding of Yorkshire Council has confirmed that the bridge across the Dutch River at Rawcliffe Bridge, which has been closed to traffic since October, will reopen to cars only from Thursday 29 March.

Motorists are being urged to drive with care on the southbound lanes of the Humber Bridge from this weekend as essential engineering works re-start.

East Riding residents are being reminded to trim their own private hedges and trees which overhang paths and roads to prevent them from causing an obstruction.
