The Boston Spa bridge has reopened after checks


Good news – the bridge that spans the River Wharfe between Boston Spa and Thorp Arch has reopened.

We reported that it had shut over safety concerns earlier today.

In a post shared by the Tadcaster Citizen on Facebook, Sarah says:

I am not sure if you’re aware that the bridge at Thorp Arch has reopened.

The structural engineers have assessed the bridge & state it’s blocked drains pushing up the tarmac & not a crack that seems to be circulating on Facebook.

My dad works in the area & has been back & forth dealing with the floods in the area at Thorp Arch Mill. I am just letting you know so people don’t panic about getting home.
