Great Yarmouth Third River Crossing - Stage 2 (Scheme development consultation)

Closed 6 Oct 2017

Opened 4 Sep 2017

Results expected 10 Nov 2017


Earlier in 2017 we asked for views on congestion in Great Yarmouth and whether people supported proposals for a Third River Crossing.  The key findings were:

  • Congestion in Great Yarmouth is a serious issue
  • The Third River Crossing would make journeys faster
  • Congestion would be reduced by the new crossing

The proposed bridge would link the newly-renumbered A47 (formerly A12) at the Harfreys roundabout in the Southtown area of Yarmouth to the port and the Enterprise Zones on the other side of the river. 

Why We Are Consulting

We are now undertaking this consultation to understand your views on the more detailed bridge options that are emerging.  The purpose of this Stage 2 consultation is to:

  • Provide an update on progress
  • Explain the current position and what happens next
  • Obtain a greater understanding of what is important to you and needs to be considered in the design.
