The Broads to start River Ant dredging project

The Broads Authority (UK) is about to begin dredging works on the River Ant, near the Sutton Staithe 24hr mooring.

The Broads

According to the Broads, the Sutton Staithe 24hr mooring will be temporarily closed to navigation due to dredging works in the area from Monday, 20 February, 2023 until Friday, 3 March, 2023.

During this period there will be no public access to the mooring and therefore no access from the mooring to the adjoining footpaths, the Broads Authority said.

The dredging of the navigation channel, situated on Sutton Broad grid ref TG380236, will involve the use of floating pontoons and small works vessels.

During the works, navigation will remain open with possible delays. However, vessels must exercise great care whilst proceeding past the vicinity of the works.
