New A5 bridge over Afon Alwen
New A5 bridge over Afon Alwen
The steel and concrete bridge takes a straighter line over Afon Alwen and replaces the stone built bridge with a fearsome corner as you approached from the west. The bridge has 6 welded steel H beams made in 3 sections which are plated and bolted together, the reflection in the river shows them clearly. The roadway is laid on reinforced concrete slabs laid across the beams. The beams rest on shock absorbers set on the concrete abutments.
