The essential maintenance work that is required at Bascule Bridge within Lowestoft has been postponed, with the plan for this work to be completed from Monday 4th January 2021 to Friday 15th January, between the hours of 8pm to 6am each night. This decision has been made by Highways England, with the consideration of the impact the maintenance work will have on local businesses and the wider community ahead of the Christmas period.
