New aerial photos have revealed how much work has already been done on the new third Great Yarmouth River crossing.
The major two-year project will transform parts of the waterfront area that has previously seen flattened houses and gardens.
The last photos show the construction of the foundations of the bridge as well as the new link road and the site roundabout.
The bridge crosses the River Yare just to the south and runs parallel to Cromwell Road.
It then joins South Denes Road on the other side of the river, near the junction with Sutton Road.
There, it will feed the existing road network with few modifications.

It is hoped that the new bridge will reduce traffic jams and travel times. There are also plans to regenerate the Southtown neighborhood with new boardwalks, cycle paths and landscaping.
The new bridge is under construction in Belgium and will be 7m high when completed.
The bridge is expected to open in early 2023.
