£40m to improve Bridlington beaches
8:42am Wednesday 2nd May 2012 in East Yorkshire news
YORKSHIRE Water has announced a £40 million investment in Bridlington to improve water quality on the resort’s two bathing beaches.
The project, scheduled to start later this year, will see significant improvements made to the local sewerage network, a pumping station and the town’s waste water treatment works.
A large sewer will be built to carry storm water which currently spills into the Gypsey Race, a local watercourse, and a new pumping station is to be constructed on the promenade and a new sea outfall provided.
Project manager Duncan Warner said: “We’re committed to doing all we can to improve our sewerage network and play our part in helping to further improve beaches and bathing waters along the Yorkshire coast, with the aim of the region boasting some of the best beaches in Europe.”
The company will hold a public exhibition and drop–in session about the proposals on May 15 at the Spa Bridlington.
