Hessle Foreshore - Re-opening of footpath to North Ferriby - Update from Network Rail

Network Rail will be reopening the Hessle Foreshore footpath between Hessle and North Ferriby on Friday 5 February 2021. This follows major work we have done on the nearby railway embankment to protect it from coastal erosion.


We had to temporarily close the footpath in March 2020 to safely install a steel coastal defence wall, which is 138m long and around 20m deep. This is an £8 million investment in protecting the railway after ground movement was detected in 2018. The work will enable trains to run reliably and safely for years to come. Train services were not impacted by the work.


We have also worked with the local charity Riding For The Disabled to improve accessibility to the footpath. At the completion of the installation, we resurfaced the track to the walking route, installed a concrete pad for new stables, fixed sheds and replaced all fencing and gates.


This has been a large undertaking, and I understand the inconvenience caused to users of the footpath, but it has been vital to make sure that towns and cities on the route stay connected and to provide passengers with a reliable and safe railway.
