Peter Aldous presents Lake Lothing Third Crossing petition to Parliament

8th March 2016

Peter Aldous presents petition to the House of Commons calling on the Government to fund the construction of the third crossing of Lake Lothing in Lowestoft.

7.3 pm

Peter Aldous (Waveney) (Con): I would like, on behalf of my Waveney constituents, to present a petition calling on the Government to fund the construction of the third crossing of Lake Lothing in Lowestoft. A strong, compelling and evidence-based business case has been prepared, and it is vital that work starts on this much-needed bridge as soon as possible.

The petition, which has 10,049 signatures, states:

The petition of residents of Waveney,

Declares that the decision to build a new crossing over Lake Lothing in Lowestoft is agreed with all possible speed; further that there is significant local support for a new crossing; and further that the new crossing would positively impact upon the local economy in Lowestoft and the surrounding area.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to confirm funding for the project in order for construction to begin as soon as possible and be completed by 2020.

And the petitioners remain, etc.

[P001676]
