A19-Chapel Haddlesey Bridge Closure Update 28 May 2020

For any residents affected by the A19 closure at Chapel Haddlesey the parish council has learned that the situation is likely to continue for a considerable time.

Initial surveys at the bridge have revealed that erosion underneath the carriageway is more extensive than initially thought.

It is likely to be late June before repair options are finalised and when work does start it is anticipated it will take 6-8 months to complete.

Bearing in mind the bridge has been closed since February the parish council will be writing to NYCC to add our voice to the growing numbers expressing concern and dismay at such a lengthy timescale.

VE Day Celebrations

What a fantastic day in the Smeatons. Great weather, flags, bunting, baking, social distancing street parties and even a fly past from our very own Captain Tom!

Playground Update

In line with government guidance the playground unfortunately remains closed. During the closure the parish council has been busy, the rubberised flooring has been cleaned and treated with moss inhibitor. Some of the climbing equipment had been identified as needing repair and this work is also being carried out, hopefully in time for re-opening.
