Newport : Hillfield tunnels viewed from the south
Newport : Hillfield tunnels viewed from the south
Viewed from the nearby footbridge. The tunnels, known as Hillfield tunnels, connect Gaer Junction (immediately behind the viewer) with Newport station.

The two portals are markedly different in design. The one on the right was opened in 1848 as part of the Gloucester to Carmarthen broad gauge route, built by the South Wales Railway and sponsored by the Great Western Railway. The portal on the left is a much later addition (1910), when the route was widened to 4 tracks.
