New foot-cycle Bridge Over the River Trent in Nottingham

Following a successful campaign by cycle and other local environmental campaigners, plans for a new foot-cycle bridge over the River Trent in Nottingham are going ahead. It will be the first new bridge over the Trent in Nottingham for more than 60 years. Developers hope to complete the £9.2 million project by Spring 2023.

Since it began in August 2014, Pedals (Nottingham Cycling Campaign) has been leading the campaign, working closely with 4 other local groups. In late 2019, Nottingham City Council was successfully in securing funding for the bridge as part of DfT’s Transforming Cities Fund. In December 2020, Amey Consulting were appointed by the City Council as Design Contractors.

The Bridge Steering Group, which includes representatives from Pedals (Nottingham Cycling Campaign) and Nottingham Local Access Forum, is very keen to continue to work closely with the City Council and other partners to make the project successful.

Above is a CGI visual (from Pell-Frischmann Transport Planning Consultants) of what the bridge might look like. The final design will not be finalised for some months yet.
