Great Yarmouth

Great Yarmouth is a major employment area with a strong manufacturing and warehousing base and a busy seaport with deep water outer harbour serving the offshore oil and gas industry. The area has been enhanced in recent years by a steady programme of road improvements which have provided a vastly improved road link to London, the industrial centres of the Midlands and the North. A new deep water outer harbour is now completed and a third river crossing is nearly complete.
