Boating News: Mooring Refurbishment Works Commencing 4 January 2022

The Broads Authority have issued the following note about upcoming refurbishment works on moorings in How Hill and Haddiscoe, commencing 4 January 2022.

Starting on 4 January there will be works taking place on our How Hill 24-hour moorings to replace the middle 100 metres of quay heading timber.

We are aiming for there to be little effect on users of the site. The remaining 200 metres of the mooring will remain accessible and the public footpath will be open throughout the works. There will be a portaloo and small compound on the staithe area but this should not impede access for pedestrians. Clear signage and barriers will be in place on site to advise visitors.

Also commencing on 4 January are works at our Haddiscoe East layby mooring to replace failing timbers along the length of the mooring. The site will have to be closed for a period of approximately two weeks during the works, which are essential to keep it serviceable. Clear signage and barriers will again be in place to advise visitors.
