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

Comments:The suggested bridges should be designed so that they do not make it more difficult to access the wet docks, currently via a lock system. This is difficult enough! Bridges need to be high enough to accommodate yachts with masts (say 30m clearance). To have to wait for bridges to open, then to wait for locks to open, will discourage boat owners, who generate a lot of the town's business.
