Yes the new fendering is falling off. It must of lasted all of a week. It looks about 3 inches thick so has narrowed the bridge by 6 inches.

This is the response I received from Norfolk County Council:

"The untreated redwood (as preservative treatments can leach into the water, causing pollution), is a short term solution to the problem of the original steel fender fixing protruding beyond the fenders. The Broads Authority brought this to our attention and a quick solution was required (timbers were installed on Friday 15 September). Replacing the timber fenders with oak boards or similar would have take longer than a single night and have been much more disruptive to river traffic.
The subsequent work carried out last Friday night (22 September), was in response to damage caused by an out of control boat and was not related to our work carried out the previous Friday (i.e. damage was to both new and old fenders and fixings and would have occurred regardless).

In addition to monitoring the condition of the new timbers, we will be producing a fender replacement scheme (for submission to and approval by The Broads Authority) to reinstate the fenders and carry out concrete repairs to the walls supporting the fenders. This will allow works to be planned (rather than being reactive) and the timing of this work will depend on the rate of deterioration of the newly install timber (which we will be monitoring) and the result of our consultations with the Broads Authority."

Well thats a similar story to what I got from the BA!

They did remove the old fendering and indeed the new fendering is only temporary to cover the bolt heads.

However I am assured the bridge width has not been reduced nor will it when the final solution has been fitted - whatever that is!!!
