Ryde is a popular and attractive city with a steady flow of tourists and a firm residential system in place, however the cities roads are beginning to out grow themselves. The river Goliath virtually splits Ryde in two from north to south with only two ways to cross, one being Lantrees suspension bridge in the town centre and the other being the M5 at the far bottom of the city.
The Highways team here at Ryde City Council have proposed plans for a new bridge to be built connecting Portslade to Newport with an interchange just north of Phoenix. The road would consist of 3 lanes heading either direction. This project will take several weeks, even months to finalise the plans and to begin construction. Please review our ariel photography of the chosen path and study the plans.
