Unusual Activity & Closures

Havengore Bridge: Closed 21.05.19

Due to a mechanical fault on Sunday 19 May, Havengore Bridge is closed to marine traffic. The contractor was on site yesterday and has diagnosed the fault as a burnt out motor on one of the road traffic safety barriers. The replacement part has been ordered and we will provide an estimated date for repair when we receive an update from the contractor.

We apologise for any inconvenience, but are hopeful that the fault will be rectified this week.

Gunfire More Noticeable

During June and July 2019, we will be conducting a series of trials at a firing point closer to the neighbouring residential area of Shoeburyness. During this period, large calibre gunfire may be more noticeable than usual. Updates on the status of the Range including notification of the end of potentially noisy activity each day is available on our Twitter feed (@SHB_Alerts) or on the home page of this website. If you have any concerns, please contact our Careline on 0800 0560108.
