Footbridge, Newport, South Wales by Richard Rogerson
Footbridge, Newport, South Wales

Opened on 12 September 2006, the footbridge spans the River Usk in the centre of Newport. The bridge features four crane-like masts, standing in pairs, which support the bridge from the west bank. The forward mast is 80 m (262 ft) long and the back mast is 69 m (226 ft) long, but because of the angles at which the masts are positioned, the back mast is the tallest part of the structure above ground level. The deck is 5 m (16 ft) wide, 145 m (476 ft) long and 4.1 m (13.5 ft) above water at mean tide. LinkExternal link
