A petition calling on the government to build the third crossing over Lake Lothing in Lowestoft has been supported by the mayor of Lowestoft.

Stephen Ardley met with Waveney MP Peter Aldous to sign the petition which was launched in an attempt to “reinforce the message” to central government about Lowestoft’s need for the multi-million pound project.

Mr Ardley will have a petition available at the Lowestoft Auction Rooms, on the South Lowestoft Industrial Estate, for his customers to sign.

“The building of the third crossing has been promised by the Prime Minister back in May, but it is vitally important that local people add their voice to help make this a reality”, Mr Ardley said.

“I want to see shops and businesses in Lowestoft supporting the petition by having it available for customers and employees to sign. Let’s see Lowestoft get behind this!” he continued.

Mr Aldous added: “Steve Ardley has set a great example in promoting this very important petition.

“It is also great to have the support of the Mayor of Lowestoft in this important issue”.

If you would like a petition for your shop or business, contact 01502 586568.

The petition can also be signed at Lowestoft Library in Clapham Road, St Margaret’s House Customer Centre in Gordon Road and Waveney District Council’s Riverside offices in Canning Road.
