Great Yarmouth Third River Crossing - stage 3 (statutory pre-application) consultation

Closes 5 Oct 2018

Opened 20 Aug 2018


The Third River Crossing scheme involves the construction, operation and maintenance of a new bridge over the River Yare in Great Yarmouth. The crossing links the A47 at Harfrey's Roundabout with South Denes Road. In Spring 2019 Norfolk County Council intends to make an application to the Secretary of State for a Development Consent Order (DCO) for the Third River Crossing.

Why We Are Consulting

We are proposing a double leaf bascule bridge (a type of lifting bridge - similar in operation to the existing Haven Bridge). Although the height and horizontal alignment of the bridge deck is already fixed, we would like to retain some flexibility regarding the range of structure design and opening mechanisms being considered.

Before making this application we would like your views on the scheme that we propose to submit.

Please read the consultation brochure before having your say. You can find links to the consultation document and all the supporting material at the bottom of this page in the 'Related links' section.
