County Bridge Resumes Full Traffic Flow After Flood Damage

Castlegate and County Bridge are now open to traffic in both directions after being closed due to heavy rain causing river levels to rise and saturating the ground.

However, a priority system for vehicles remains on Sheepfoot Hill in Malton due to road surface problems and concerns about a potential sink hole.

A one-way system is also in place on Church Street, and pumps are still operating at the scene, with hopes that the traffic restrictions will be lifted soon.

North Yorkshire Council’s executive member for highways and transportation, Cllr Keane Duncan, expressed gratitude to the public for their patience during the disruption in Malton and Norton, and assured that the situation is being closely monitored.

Several pumps remain on site in both Malton and Norton, with expectations of falling river levels as lighter rain showers are forecasted for the week.

A one-way trial on Norton Road was temporarily removed to allow two-way traffic and minimize the impact on motorists.
