A multi-million pound project to replace the bridge deck of Baitings Gate Road - the road bridge which runs over Baitings reservoir in Ripponden - has been completed.

Mott MacDonald Bentley have been working for almost a year on Yorkshire Water’s behalf.

The whole deck section of the bridge was replaced for safety reasons and has now been reopened to the public.

To complete the £2m project, 35 precast concrete beams weighing in at 400 tonnes were used, along with 300 tonnes of reinforced concrete and 150 tonnes of tarmac.
