From September 4 to October 16 2017, Suffolk County Council is encouraging residents, businesses and landowners to give feedback on the long-awaited plans.

The third crossing would significantly ease Lowestoft's traffic congestion, which plagues the existing crossing points at the A47 Bascule Bridge and the Mutford Lock bridge in Oulton Broad.

Under the proposals there would be a new link between north and south Lowestoft, providing a focal point for the town and potentially helping to regenerate the area.

All the details about the plans can be viewed at suffolk.gov.uk, where you can also find out when the public consultation events will be taking place.

The questionnaire, available from September 4, can be filled out online or returned via post.
