Town Bridge Schedule
Weymouth Town bridge is currently on winter routine. Vessels requiring a lift should provide a minimum 1 hours notice. Vessels transiting the bridge should monitor VHF Channel 12. Our full bridge timetable is below or contact the Harbour Office via VHF Channel 12 or on +44 (0)1305 838423 (answerphone when not manned).
Air height boards are situated on either side of the bridge showing clearance heights at the centre of the arch.
For safety reasons traffic through the bridge is one way, controlled by traffic lights. Priority is broadcast on VHF Channel 12 prior to the bridge lift. Traffic lights apply to all vessels whether they require a bridge lift or not. For your own safety and the safety of others you must observe and conform to bridge navigation lights and the instructions of bridge operators at all times. To minimise the time the bridge is raised, vessels are requested to maintain close formation to the vessel ahead as safe navigation will permit.
Town Bridge navigation traffic lights are different from and should not be confused with Pierhead traffic signals.
