Selby Rail Bridge gets a make-over

Posted on 20 July 2014 by David Moss

After several years of waiting, Network Rail's repainting and mechanical overhaul of the rail bridge over the River Ouse in Selby will be carried out, starting in July. The work is scheduled for completion by the end of the summer.

Selby Civic Society have complained to Network rail since 2011 about the unsightly, rust-stained paintwork that made the bridge such an eyesore for residents and visitors at the main northern gateway to Selby. Within a few weeks that should all be changed - and we hope to see a pristine, grey bridge spanning the Ouse.
