Little Ouse Railway Bridge – Brandon

RESTRICTION (Monday 10 May until Friday 4 June 2021)

Please be aware contractors working on behalf of Network rail
will be undertaking some urgent health and safety repairs to Little
Ouse Railway Bridge (TL7669887143) which will necessitate
scaffolding being constructed under the bridge, which is designed to a depth of 300mm below the bridge deck.

A temporary floating pontoon will be used to erect/dismantle the scaffolding but
can be moved to give access to any boat which needs to cross the river. The
scaffolding will reduce headroom by no more than 300mm when in place.
River users may experience short delays whilst the pontoon is in use to
assemble and remove the scaffolding of up to 30 min’s duration maximum.
Navigation is still possible and we request that contractor’s signage and
instructions are followed.
