Temporary partial closure of Repps Bank 24hr mooring due to refurbishment works

Notice is hereby given that the Repps Bank 24hr mooring in Potter Heigham is partially closed to navigation for refurbishment work. The majority of the mooring will remain open for this period, but there will be sections of no more than 50m closed at any one time while works are undertaken.

The project was due to start earlier in the year but due to the unprecedented high water levels, the project was delayed. The refurbishment works will continue through summerc2024 to ensure that the mooring is completely finished before the water levels rise again in the winter. Our contractors are working so that some of the mooring remains open as they progress. We apologise for any disruption caused.

The contractors on site are working very hard to ensure that it is completed as soon as possible.

The Broads Authority do not tolerate any abuse towards its contractors and if any members of the public have any concerns, please contact the Broads Authority, Yare House, 62-64 Thorpe Road, Norwich, Norfolk, NR1 1RY Tel (01603) 610734.

We thank you for your understanding and patience as we work to improve the safety of this free 24 hour mooring.

The site is situated at Potter Heigham on the River Thurne grid ref TG 41925 18368 shown in red on the plan extract.

The works will involve the timber refurbishment of the existing quay heading. Note: Vessels must exercise great care whilst proceeding past the vicinity of the works.

Alternative 24-hour moorings can be found at Womack Dyke and for vessels able to pass under Potter Heigham Bridge, moorings are available at Potter Heigham Martham Bank.
