Actually what the BA meant to say is that the Southern Broads are closed to any large craft coming in through Yarmouth on the 18th September. Due to some wonderful planning the New cut is also fully closed for piling works on the 18th and 19th September. So anything to tall to fit under the bridge at St Olaves, will be able to travel as far as St Olaves, downstream of the bridge, or up as far as Reedham bridge or the Reedham end of the cut.

Please note that the jacks being manually operated at present to lift and therefore give opportunity to swing the bridge have now broken today.   Network Rail have confirmed this morning that new jacks are being installed over the next few days and whilst this work is being undertaken the bridge will only open at the following times:

20-30 minutes past  9.00 am
20-30 minutes past 11.00 am
20-30 minutes past 1.00 pm
20-30 minutes past 3.00 pm
20-30 minutes past 5.00 pm
20-30 minutes past 6.00pm
20-30 minutes past 7.00pm

The work should be completed by 18 September when the bridge should be back to normal operation and swinging on demand when trains are not crossing the track and obviously allowing for the relevant safety margin.


Network Rail have just updated us further regarding the bridge.  Please note that the bridge will be back to normal operation from 18 AUGUST 2007 not 18 September as previously stated.  The bridge will not be operational on 18 September  for one days work by EDF on the power supply as per the previous notice to mariners No 9 of 2007.


Kind regards
