Lowestoft – Bascule Bridge Closures

Mariners and Port-Users are advised that extensive maintenance works are scheduled for Lowestoft Bascule Bridge for January and February. This will result in a series of overnight Marine closures. All these closures will run from 2000hrs GMT until 0600hrs GMT on the following day.

Details for these closures are as follows:-

Mon 29th January to Friday 16th February, (dates inclusive) – 19 consecutive nights

No small boat openings. Commercial vessel openings only considered with a minimum of 12hrs notice and subject to the works schedule. Vessels restricted to HW period port entry/departure only will be prioritised.

Every attempt will be made to accommodate commercial requirements, including temporary allocation of berths in the Outer Harbour area. It may be possible to accommodate small boat transits with any essential commercial vessel openings, although small boats will only be permitted to transit with a large commercial vessel if in the same direction of travel.

Dates may change subject to the progress of works. If any additional closures are required an additional notice will be issued.

Agents, Owners and Vessel masters are advised to bear these closures in mind when planning vessel movements in or out of the Port of Lowestoft

Please contact Lowestoft Port Control, VHF Ch14, or Tel. 01502 572286, if further information is required.
