BA Notification - Reedham Bridge

Recommended Posts

Different mindset here in Suffolk! Both Reedham & Somerleyton are too far away from a fire hydrant :shocked!

Another rumour I heard was that they can't hose the rails down in case any contamination goes into the river!   

I do wonder what happens when it rains?

If you extract water from the rivers then you need a licence to do so. Plus the depth in the river might drop meaning that more dredging will be required, especially near the bridge. By the time table top studies have been done, computer models developed and the UEA consulted then I suspect the sun will have gone in.

Ah I have just remembered its British Rail - it must be the wrong kind of water.

Where I grew up temperatures between june and august were regularly over 30 degrees C, the highest in my time was 44 degrees C.

Did everything grind to a halt.......err NO.
