Nottinghamshire County Council supports city bid for new bridge

Nottinghamshire County Council is supporting proposals for a new pedestrian and cycle bridge over the River Trent.

The £9.27million bridge is being funded by Nottingham City Council’s bid to the Government’s Transforming Cities Fund and, if approved in the future by the relevant planning authorities, will link Trent Basin to Trent Fields, Lady Bay.

Councillor Neil Clarke MBE, Chairman of the Transport and Environment Committee, said: “We support the proposals for this new bridge and the benefits it will bring to pedestrians and cyclists.

“The county council was not able to bid for funding from the Government’s Transforming Cities Fund, but we believe that this project, being overseen by Nottingham City Council, will benefit Nottinghamshire residents by enhancing the existing walking and leisure cycling network.

“The bridge will help promote cycling and walking, and we recognise that a number of improvements to existing highways networks are needed to ensure that pedestrians and cyclists can safely access the new bridge.

“We will continue to work closely with Nottingham City Council to ensure that these improvements are secured as planning conditions when the application is submitted.

“We want to build a healthier, more prosperous and greener Nottinghamshire and hope that this scheme will complement our ambitions.”
