Lowestoft’s exciting new Gull Wing Bridge Scheme

Eccles supplies Lowestoft’s Gull Wing Bridge Scheme with its AquaDeck Bridge Drainage System

Contractor – Farrans Construction

Client – Suffolk County Council

Product: 1400 AquaDeck units

Eccles’ AquaDeck ductile iron combined kerb bridge drainage system will be installed on the iconic new Gull Wing Bridge in Lowestoft.

Over 1400 AquaDeck units will be installed on this prestigious new structure being delivered by Suffolk County Council and built by Farrans.

The Gull Wing Bridge will open in 2023 providing a much-needed third crossing over Lake Lothing to link Waveney Drive to Denmark Road and Peto Way.

As well as attracting new investment opportunities and helping regenerate the area, the project should reduce traffic congestion in the town also.

AquaDeck Project Director Chris Rothery said:

“Projects like this don’t come along that often and we are thrilled to be associated with such an iconic new landmark.”

The AquaDeck system will drain both sides of the carriageway; Eccles are currently busy designing bespoke Aquadeck Expansion Joint Drainage components which will cross the multi element movement joints at 4 locations at both North & South abutments.
