Lowestoft Third Crossing Feasibility Study

Icon Red diamond

A feasibility study on the options of a third crossing at Lake Lothing in Lowestoft. The feasibility study resulted in the announcement of £70m Government funding for the scheme in the 2016 Budget.

The Department for Transport formally approved the bridge – to be named Gull Wing – in April 2020. Suffolk County Council gave its unanimous approval several months later and agreed to borrow funds to cover the costs, which had increased from £91m to around £126.75m.

Construction work is scheduled to begin in 2021, with the bridge expected to open in the summer of 2023.
