About the third river crossing

A third river crossing will provide much needed connections between the strategic road network and the fast growing energy related Enterprise Zone and is crucial in providing linkages across the River Yare to the economic growth hub in the South Denes peninsula.

The new crossing would join Harfreys Roundabout in Great Yarmouth and over the river to South Denes Road.  This follows extensive technical work including a best route alignment and cost benefit analysis.  This route was adopted by Cabinet in 2010. 

A third river crossing would deliver numerous benefits to the area and solve a number of existing problems, including the current lack of connectivity, which severely restricts movement in Great Yarmouth.  This results in congestion and ultimately limits the economic potential of the Enterprise Zone, Energy Park, South Denes Business Park and the deep water outer harbour.
