Nottingham City Council Approves Plans for River Trent Bridge

Nottingham City Council unanimously approves a new £9.2m foot-cycle bridge over the Trent between Trent Basin and Lady Bay (West Bridgford). This will be the first new bridge over the River Trent in Nottingham in over 60 years.

This follows a successful campaign (launched in 2014) by pedals (Nottingham Cycling campaign), Nottingham Civic Society, Nottingham Local Access Forum, the River Crescent Residents’ Association and Blueprint Regeneration with the support of 20 other local environmental and transport groups.

The bridge, due for completion in 2023, is being implemented with support from the DFT’S Transforming Cities Fund.
