Breydon Bridge

The Authority has been informed by Eastport Uk that following overnight repairs last week and trial lifts over the weekend, the bridge is returned to full service and is now fully operational.

Exposed damaged posts – Breydon Water, River Yare – 5 Mile bends

Breydon Water starboard hand navigation post no. 49, just before the Dickey Works, has been broken off. There is about 1 metre still exposed at average calm water high tide.

Oulton Broad - Mutford Lock - restricted operation

The Broads Authority has been working hard to rectify the damage to the electrical and hydraulic control systems at Mutford Lock following the flooding in December. We understand it is a high priority for users and have been doing our best to get it back into operation.

Update on bridges - 7 February 2014

Trowse Bridge - Not operational (but can be opened at very restricted times, see below)

Network Rail have informed us that the current testing has been exhausted without achieving reliable operations of the bridge. Outside contractors are now being sought to rectify the reliability problems. Due to the fact that the bridge has been out of action for some time Network Rail have agreed that they are willing to swing the bridge manually by bringing in plant staff when required.

Due to the frequency of London trains and the time it takes to operate a swing manually the bridge can be opened on a Sunday at 09:05 and any night between 02:00 and 04:00 provided seven days' notice has been given to allow for plant staff to be on site. Openings within these times can be arranged by contacting Network Rail through their Area Incident Control Centre. This is staffed 24/7 and they will then pass on the request to the Ipswich Distribution & Plant team for a response.
