Breydon Bridge

From the Broads Authority 20th July 2018

Urgent boating news issued by the Broads Authority on 19 July 2018

Breydon Bridge

A shallow area has built up in the channel at the entrance of the southern span of Breydon Bridge (which would normally be used when leaving Breydon). This effects deep drafted vessels around the time of low water only. These vessels are advised to use the centre span of Breydon Bridge around low water until further notice. Please note the centre span is 0.5m lower than the side spans which the gauge boards are set to.

Please plan your journey accordingly. The centre and northern spans are not affected. Bridge lifts can be requested as normal. For further information please contact Broads Control on 01603 756056.

 

Exactly how deep drafted isn't defined.

Nothing a little bit of dredging wouldn't fix, surely...... :default_icon_rolleyes:

I wonder if this has any connection with the mud pumping in the Lower Bure?
