Now the weather has cools somewhat Reedham was opening all day today (Sun 9th) Not heard of any problems - Most closures are on the BA Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/BroadsAuthority Sometimes re- opening info can lag a bit
Once again we arrive at our boat to hear every bridge is non operational again what an absolute disgrace mooring on the Broards seems to be becoming a waste of time A toll reduction for larger boats needs to be reduced
Looks like Reedham Bridge is now fixed - only one flag up & swinging this morning (Sun 9am)- no regular passenger trains now till Mon 24th due to engineering at Cantley including replacing track through station & work on the level crossing which is also closed.
And to be brutally honest, if your boat needs every bridge to open to allow you to move around, perhaps you should not keep your boat on the Broads either! This is not a new problem and a little research would have shown you that this has been occurring for many years - with that in mind you clearly bought your boat with your eyes wide open to the issues that would probably recur annually??
I think you need to buy a boat more suitable for the Broads. If you want to keep your existing boat Moor it closer to the coast,so you no longer have to worry about bridges that broads boats have no problem with
There was talk last year about raising the money to employ a barrister to take the railways to court as they are not complying with the right of passage that I have been led to believe was agreed when the bridges were first built, this resulted in a meeting involving the Railway, the ba and some other interested parties. The Railways accepted it was there fault and that money was being made available for the future updating of these bridges some 80m i believe. Not 100% sure I've got this bang on but the gist is correct
