Works 11-14th January 2024

We are continuing the final stages of our essential maintenance to Ferriby Road Bridge this week. This is to replace the expansion joints in the carriageway on the Southbound side of the Bridge (Hessle to Barton).

To facilitate this work there will be lane closures in place Southbound. This will be happening on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday 11-13th January between the hours of 7pm to 6am each day (meaning these works will finish early Sunday morning). 

Please note that you will still be able to cross the Bridge with or without a HumberTag, however, you will need to follow the signage and possibly pay online (www.humbertag.com).

Also, between Friday 12th January and Sunday 14th January we will be maintaining  some expansion joints on the Bridge itself. There will be a lane closure northbound in place at the South end of the bridge. During this time, for the protection of the public, we will be closing the West footpath and opening the East footpath instead.

Drivers are urged to allow extra time for their journeys in order to minimise any potential disruptions.

Works of this nature are weather dependent, meaning that they may need to be cancelled and rescheduled at short notice. Should this occur, more information will be provided on our social media channels as soon as it becomes available.

This week we will be moving into the final stages of our essential maintenance to Ferriby Road Bridge. This is to replace the expansion joints in the carriageway – which thankfully is not something which has to be done often and will not need doing again for many years!

There will also be traffic management in place with all traffic filtered through the toll booths. Similar works on the southbound side of the Bridge are currently planned for the w/c 11th December, and more information will be provided nearer the time.

Please note that you will still be able to cross the Bridge, however, you will need to follow all traffic management and signage. HumberTag customers can still use the Toll Booths.

Drivers are urged to allow extra time for their journeys in order to minimise any potential disruptions.

HBB Poetry Competition

We are super excited to announce the winner of our poetry competition today of all days, National Poetry Day!!!

So (drum roll please) a big massive congratulations to David Wilberforce who has won with his poem called A Lockdown Walk Across The Humber.

The judges said David’s poem was both memorable and lyrical.

We know you’ll be dying to hear the poem, but there’s an amazing reason why you’ll just need to wait a little longer.

As part of David’s prize, Hull Uni has arranged for him to work with some professional poets to enhance his work before collaborating with soundscape artists and musicians to create a multi-media reading of A Lockdown Walk Across The Humber. We don’t want to rush the creative process, so can’t set an exact time for release, but hope to share via our social channels by mid-November. The poem will also then be available on our website and via a QR code on the Humber Bridge estate, so you can listen to it whenever you visit.

A huge thank you to our friends at Hull Uni, who have helped with the judging and arranging the prizes.

Special mention goes to Suzanne MacLeod and Miriam Moore, who came second and third respectively, and whose poems will also be available on our website very soon.

And a big massive heart-felt thank you to all of our entrants, we were blown away by the quality of all the submissions, which was echoed by our judges, who commented on how tricky it was to pick a winner.

Happy National Poetry Day!!!
