Project location & overview:
Gull Wing, the Lowestoft Lake Lothing Third Crossing, is an exciting and much-needed piece of infrastructure which will provide an essential link from Waveney Drive (South) to Denmark Road and Peto Way (North) of Lake Lothing.
The new bridge, innovative in its design, will have a closed air draft height of 12 metres which is is significantly higher than the existing bascule bridge to the east of the lake. This will allow for a significantly reduced number of openings, improving the traffic flow in the town.
Lake Lothing Third Crossing, named by local school children as part of a competition as ‘Gull Wing’, will connect the south bank on Waveney Drive to Denmark Road and Peto Way on the north side of Lake Lothing.
Gull Wing will cost an estimated £145 million and construction started in early 2021.
It has been a pleasure to work with Suffolk County Council on Gull Wing through the various project stages. We look forward to seeing all of the hard work become a reality.
