New video shows bridge leaves arriving in Great Yarmouth


Watch a new video showing the first of two bridge leaves arriving in Great Yarmouth for Herring Bridge.

The leaves will be installed during a 72 river possession starting 08:00 21st March.

Herring Bridge is being delivered by BAM Farrans Joint Venture and will be open to the public during the summer of 2023.

The construction stage started in January 2021 with the accommodation, enabling and demolition works. This is followed by the in river marine works and construction of the approach embankments which will support two underpass and the bascule bridge (opening bridge). Once complete the local road network will be upgraded with a five-arm roundabout and dual carriageway.

The bridge will link the A47 at Harfrey’s roundabout to the port and the enterprise zone on the other side of the river. It will ease traffic congestion on the town’s roads, shortening journey times and improving journey reliability, as well as supporting wider plans and work to maximise investment, regeneration and economic growth opportunities in the town and wider borough.
