Third River Crossing is named
Last year we asked you to name the new Third River Crossing in Great Yarmouth, which can now be revealed!
'Herring Bridge' was the clear favourite in both the in person vote and online poll winning with 2710 votes overall. Second place was Queens Gate (869 votes), closely followed by Britannia Bridge (857 votes) and Yare Bridge (814 votes), with Kings Bridge in fifth place receiving 572 votes.
The bridge is expected to be operational and open to traffic by Summer 2023 - improving access by easing traffic congestion on the town's roads, shortening journey distance and times and improving journey reliability, as well as supporting wider plans to maximise investment, regeneration and economic growth opportunities in the town and wider borough.
