Newport Transporter Bridge: winter shutdown (3)
Newport Transporter Bridge: winter shutdown (3)
As the bridge is now being treated as a tourist attraction by the city council rather than as part of Newport’s transport infrastructure, it is now only open during the spring and summer months.

The gondola is parked a short distance from the west bank of the River Usk during the shutdown period.
The bridge is on the route of both National Cycle Route 4 Link and the Wales Coast Path Link .
When it is closed, there is an alternative route upriver that crosses the River Usk via the City Bridge Link .
It is a Grade I Listed structure.
