Bridlington set for £6.3m transport overhaul

Bridlington has received £5 million of Government money for a radical overhaul of the town’s transport system.

Transport minister Paul Clark has given the go-ahead for a scheme which includes a new park and ride, the relocation of the boat compound at Wilsthorpe, and a much-needed roundabout at Carnaby.

Once complete, the changes will help cut peak-time congestion in the town centre.

The Department for Transport will provide £5.4 million, with East Riding of Yorkshire Council meeting the remainder of the total cost of £6.3 million.

Construction work on the Council-funded boat compound works began in March, and the remainder of the project is due to begin next month.

The Council hope to complete the entire project by April 2010, with the Park and Ride site ready by next spring.
