Western Bridge, The Crescent, Ebbw Vale
This is the western bridge of the Newtown Bridge complex and carries The Crescent under the former railway. Originally constructed of wood this was rebuilt in stone in 1859. This structure collapsed killing two men and was rebuilt in 1861. This is the road bridge we see today. Next door a prefabricated concrete pedestrian tunnel was put in 1964. The whole Newtown Bridge is a Grade II listed structure.
