Do you have any further comments or concerns about the location and/or operation of the crossings?

Comments:I am unsure why three crossings are involved. This would seem to add significant cost compared with two road crossings (new cut plus Prince Philip lock), and the crossing south of the lock would appear to give much more of a problem for marina access, which is very important for the town.
