Yar Bridge

In 2013, Island Roads became responsible for the operation of the Yar Swing Bridge. The Harbour Master delivers this service to boat owners on our behalf.

The information below provides details about the overall operation of the Yar Swing Bridge, however, please contact Yarmouth Harbour directly if you have more specific questions.

To request a bridge opening, please contact the Harbour Office on VHF Channel 68 (call sign Yar Bridge) or telephone 01983 760321.

During the summer season (BST), boat owners are requested to synchronise their bridge use around the following fixed opening times:
