Introducing the Lake Lothing Third Crossing

The Lake Lothing Third Crossing would link from Waveney Drive on the south side, to Denmark Road and Peto Way on the north side of Lake Lothing.

It would be a lifting bridge to enable tall vessels to pass through. However, it would also be higher than the existing bascule bridge so a large number of boats would be able to pass underneath without the need to lift.

See where the proposed crossing would be located in the video. This shows an indicative alignment and design and still requires a lot of work to refine exactly how it will look.
