Noticed as we drove through last Thursday that the bridge is having extensive work done which will last up until just prior to Christmas.   This is going to reduce the height for boats going under and will also have a knock on effect on the traffic.  Has anyone any idea of what provisions are being made for traffic on the road to cross the bridge.  I think hirers should be made aware of the height restrictions under the bridge as a long old haul all the way round and up the New Cut if you get caught out.

Thanks for that Steve and Vicky - I do hope that the hire companies will make their hirers aware of this.  Not the most friendliest of tides when you are caught out having to turn round in that area.     Wouldnt be a bad idea for a notice to be put up by the BA at the entrance of the river up to St Olaves as you come from Breydon similar to what you get on the roads.
