It is holding a public consultation on the proposals for the Waterside Bridge, an arched structure that would be the first bridge to be built over the Trent in the city for more than 60 years.
The project is being led by the city council, working in partnership with Rushcliffe Borough Council and in consultation with Nottinghamshire County Council.
Councillor Rosemary Healy, portfolio holder for transport at Nottingham City Council, said: “There is clearly a need for more crossings like this over the Trent and this bridge would open up safer, quieter routes for people walking, cycling or running, whether for commuting or leisure, making it easier for people to travel in a more sustainable way.”
The need for a bridge was identified in the city council’s Waterside Supplementary Planning Document in 2019. The council secured US$12.5 million from the UK government’s Transforming Cities programme to deliver the scheme as part of a programme to invest in local transport infrastructure that will improve sustainable transport, support growth and encourage more low-carbon journeys.
