This rather important Notice to Mariners seems to have slipped through the usual notification procedures:

BROADS AUTHORITY
NOTICE TO MARINERS No. 4 of 2018
Access Restriction at Ludham Bridge

Notice is hereby given that emergency works are being undertaken on behalf of Norfolk County Council on the fendering through Ludham Bridge during the following period:

Monday 5 March 2018 08:00 hrs until Friday 9 March 2018 16:30 hrs and Monday 12 March 2018 08:00 hrs until Friday 16 March 2018 16:30 hrs

During this period the bridge will be only open before 08:00; at lunchtimes 12:00-13:00; and after 16:30 each day. Please observe the signage on the approach to the bridge. During the contractor’s active working times, there will normally be no access through the bridge, but if you are able to safely approach the supervisor on site, there may be occasions when passage can be allowed during these restricted periods.

Please approach the area with care and caution.

Thanks for that info Paladine. I,m up for 4 days next week departing my mooring at Stalham on Saturday and will need to get off of the Ant to get to Wroxham and Potter and return Tuesday.
Thanks again, Ray.

When I went under the bridge a couple of weeks ago l thought to myself that the temporary fix that was done last year was looking pretty permanent. Makes you wonder why they have waited until the start of the boating season before doing the work.

Just to clarify - this has nothing directly to do with the BA!! It is being done by contractors working for NCC and it may be a little late but my understanding is that it was planned earlier but there have been issues.

The "temporary" bits are to come off and they are then renewing the original fendering - the "temporary " fix will not stay as it reduces the width , and it is being restored to full width as previously.

It seems that on both sides of the bridge the "go" sign is showing. If there is no-one working there, surely it would be safer to move them altogether, otherwise vessels approaching from either side at the same time may now not exercise the usual caution-assuming that someone on the "other" side has turned the notice to stop?
