A47 Breydon Bridge (work completed)
During 2022 and 2023, we carried out a range of work on the A47 Breydon Bridge in Great Yarmouth, including maintenance, improvements and upgrades to the system that controls the bridge.
We carried out work to replace the old systems that operated the bridge, replacing an old control panel and providing new hydraulics. By doing this work, we avoided any future emergency closures that could happen if these old systems broke down.
Most of this work was done using scaffolding under the bridge to minimise the amount of road closures and traffic disruption as much as possible.
The bridge was not open for marine traffic during this work.
This will keep the Breydon Bridge in a safe and serviceable condition. It will also make it easier for boats passing through.
