Nearly there… These pictures show the temporary footbridge at Tadcaster now reaching across the River Wharfe.
The two halves of the town are inching ever closer to being reunited, with the hope that the footbridge will be open to the public this week.
More work needs to be done, including fitting the decked walkway, before the opening which is due to take place on Friday afternoon.
Engineers have been working 12 hours a day, seven days a week to get the bridge in place.
Tadcaster has been split apart since the old stone road bridge collapsed during the December floods.
The temporary bridge will span from the Selby District Council car park on the eastern side of Tadcaster to Tadcaster Town Council land on the western side.
Meanwhile the painstaking work of reconstructing the main bridge is underway.
This week, demolition contractors were beginning to salvage stones from the bridge that fell into the river and to remove bits of the bridge that are unsafe to make safe to start work on.
North Yorkshire County Council estimate that it will take 12 months to repair and reopen the stone bridge.
