A new bridge has been installed over the Inner Purfleet in Lynn town centre.

The £70,000 project by West Norfolk Council has also seen the waterway cleared out and overhanging vegetation cut back.

Designed to complement the new bridges in The Walks, the bridge provides disabled access to the Baker Lane car park and the new garden area.

The garden has been planted as part of the council’s joint Arts, Cities and Landscape Project with Amiens in France.

Councillor Elizabeth Nockolds said the new garden provided a peaceful and restful spot for visitors to enjoy.

“The new bridge will give people with dsabilities, wheelchair users and people
with buggies easy access to the town centre,” she added.

The bridge will now be decorated to match the existing paintwork in the area and the old one removed.
