A city centre pedestrian crossing is to be rebuilt. The footbridge over Anglesea Road used to stand adjacent to the railway bridge until it was accidentally demolished ten years ago when a lorry crashed into it. The bridge is a key pedestrian link for University students and for people walking between the city centre and Gunwharf.

 

 

The council’s Local Transport Plan sets aside £606 000 to build a new bridge during the new financial year, although the early indications are that the project will cost less than that. Contributions will be sought from the University and the council will consider selling the naming rights – the bridge will be over the main route through the city, making it an attractive place for advertisers.
