It wasn't working at all last saturday, I had to change my times so I could fold down and sneak under as the tide dropped, they were having issues with early may BH too but did manage to get lifts.

It could be down to the fact they are expecting huge crowds to the airshow that weekend.

It's strange they have only just listed that because I thought a large group had booked a 9:30 lift months ago.

well that could be fun if they all turn up at 9.30  expecting a bridge lift.

It was far from funny when they cancelled two pre-booked bridge lifts on consecutive days for Independence :default_badday:

It could be argued that The Haven Commissioners and their successors have had since October 21st 1930 to source the spares needed. I would venture to suggest if the bridge was down at the Gorelston end of the harbour, then it would be repaired in double quick time.

I believe the NYA cruising club are off to Belgium this weekend that going to cause serious issues for them , no doubt they have pre booked moorings in Belgium hence it's a bit nore of an issue that the bridge not opening of a single boat though no doubt being the experienced group that they are there's a plan B .

Plan b is Mutford lock. 

I think 19 fair size boats so that will be fun.  Although wouldn't surprise me if some go through today and they moor at rnsyc. If they have any visitor moorings free!!!!

as Griff said. It were broke back in Feb and still they have messed about.

Mark, the RNSYC was full of Dutch boats the other week so we moored in the Hamilton Dock, no problems. When the tide is equal at the Lock it is possible for both sets of gates to be opened at the same time allowing a flotilla of boats to go straight through.

Update from the Broads Authority:-

Dear All 

Urgent Boating News - Haven Bridge, Great Yarmouth is currently non-operational, and unable to lift for vessel traffic. Engineers are working to diagnose the fault, and formulate a plan of repairs, once the fault cause is identified.

The timeframe for returning the bridge to operation is unknown at this time, however repairs are unlikely to be completed before this coming weekend (16 - 17 June 2018). This is due to the anticipated timeframe to source spare parts for a 90 year old bridge.

This announcement is released today in order to provide maximum notice to vessel owners hoping to use the bridge over the airshow weekend, and to allow them time to make alternative journey plans. Should the bridge be returned to service prior to this coming weekend, we will issue an update as appropriate.

Please note that road traffic is unaffected by this breakdown.

Kind Regards
