Humber Bridge

Volume 508: debated on Tuesday 6 April 2010

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport when he expects all lanes of the Humber Bridge to be open to traffic. (325708)

The lane restrictions are a matter for the Humber Bridge Board. My understanding is these are currently in place at the Humber Bridge and are essential for traffic management for the dehumidification work on the bridge, and that they will need to be implemented on a regular basis over the next two years.

The works have been carefully planned to avoid contraflow on the bridge other than when absolutely essential and generally only on weekends.
