A three-tone weight restriction was put in place in 2018 following the discovery of a number of defects that required further investigation.

Norfolk County Council has been regularly monitoring the bridge during this period and is now satisfied that the restriction can be removed.

The council will continue to monitor the bridge under normal loading conditions in order to determine if any further action is required.
