In our most recent monthly newsletter (January 2020) some incorrect information about Acle Bridge was shared regarding works at the site. Please accept our apologies for sharing this incorrect information which arose due to a genuine error.
The latest update is that major sheet piling works along the river frontage are to be carried out at Acle Bridge 24 hour moorings starting at the end of February. Our appointed contractor is in the process of mobilising to site after waiting for water levels to drop to a suitable level. Phase one of major works at the site will be to completely renew 110 metres of sheet piling, plus installing a new mooring path and three electric charging points for boats.
Works are planned to extend for several weeks around and including the Easter holiday period and will involve the moorings, a section of the Weavers Way public footpath, car park and toilet area being closed. Signage and fencing on site will be placed to exclude people from those areas at all times during the construction phase.
There will be a 55 metre section of the mooring left open on the upstream end for boaters to moor to during the works. Footpath access from the mooring will only be available for pedestrians heading towards Oby and Thurne. The Weavers Way public footpath through the construction site will remain closed until project completion. Advance notices on the Weavers Way have been installed.
Works will be closely monitored for progress and the Broads Authority will seek to open any areas of the site as soon as it is safe to do so. To report any issues please contact Broads Control on 01603 756056. Thank you for your understanding.
