Works on Hoveton St John Moorings from January to March 2018

The Broads Authority are planning to carry out the works at the Hoveton St John moorings starting early January 2018 for 10 weeks up until the Easter holiday period . The quay heading timber will be renewed and raised by approximately six inches. The path at the moorings will be narrowed to about 2.5 metres from the quay heading and 3 metres from the quay heading at the electric points. This will mean that the path is kept drier than the rest of the site as at the moment it is susceptible to flooding.  It will be a grey type one footpath surface with a back rail and then graded off to the existing height of the grass, the graded area will be top soiled and seeded to expand the grass area.

Please note that access will be very restricted through the area during works on site. Signage will be in place diverting people around the roadside path rather than through the construction site.

If we encounter high water etc during the project and it causes delays then we will manage the work accordingly to ensure that it can be opened up sensibly to the public during the Easter period. It is anticipated that works will be complete by then but a contingency will be in place to pause work if necessary and complete after the early Easter break if this is required.
