How are they going to get it through the 'stuck' Trowse Railway Bridge?????
We are told they (Network Rail) can't afford to repair it so it will open on request, so how is that ship going to transit it??? Or are Network Rail telling porkies so we don't ask for it to open when we wish to go into Norwich and the Yacht Station!!!
Did see a couple of big'ish tugs transit Breydon Bridge yesterday while shopping in ASDA.
This is what is on BA website currently "Trowse Bridge currently is currently experiencing mechanical problems requiring extra assistance to operate. Network Rail therefore require seven days’ notice to open the bridge. The opening times are 9.05 am on Sundays and any day between 02.00 am and 04.00 am. To arrange opening please call Network Rail on either 01603 675297 or 01603 763440. Any problems in arranging the opening of the bridge should be reported to the Broads Authority Monitoring Officer on 01603 756018 or to firstname.lastname@example.org, who will be pleased to assist" I wonder what will happen to the road surface of Carrow Bridge as it looked pretty poor when I walked over a week or so ago.
