Impact School of Motoring have offered driving lessons in Hamworthy, Poole for many years. With our extensive experience we would like to give some advice to pupils on how to be safe dealing with the lifting bridge in Hamworthy.


Driving Lessons Hamworthy

 This is the Hamworthy lifting bridge. This is not something drivers will come across very frequently so many aren’t too sure how to deal with it. The very first thing I would like to mention is if you know you have a route that will be taking you across this bridge, check the lifting times before you leave, I won’t list them all here but generally on the half hour (at the moment). There are also signs on roads that lead to the bridge warning you if the bridge is up check these and if you know the bridge will be up, go another way. If you are approaching the bridge and the amber warning light comes on, stop if it is safe to do so. If the red lights are on you should see these from far back so it will be safe to stop you do this behind the white line before the box junction. It is also very thin going across the bridge and you must make sure the larger oncoming vehicles are leaving you enough space. If in doubt wait for the larger vehicles to come the other way before entering the bridge. If you do wait make sure it is behind the box junction. I will however also mention some pupils will tend to be a little over cautious and wait when there is enough space, if it does make you a little nervous my main piece of advice would be focus on the gap, when you are crossing the bridge be aware of but don’t look at the vehicles on the other side and focus on how much space you have on your side. This may all be irrelevant soon as the council are building a new bridge and this one may be virtually unused, but I have no doubt they will do it in there usual double quick time of about 10 years so this may be useful for a little longer yet.
