Newport Transporter Bridge

The bridge was shut down in 1985 because of wear. Following a £3 million refurbishment, it reopened in 1995 and operated until late 2007 before service was indefinitely suspended. Today, the bridge is widely regarded as the most recognisable symbol of the city of Newport.
The bridge forms part of the classified highway network and is also where route 4 of the National Cycle Network crosses the River Usk and route 47 begins.
It was the focal point of the local millennium celebrations of 2000, where fireworks were fired from its length, and has been featured in several movies and television shows. It was the centrepiece of the Crow Point Festival in September 2006 to celebrate its centenary. It is used for charity events such as sponsored abseils
Travel across the bridge was free for all kinds of bikes and pedestrians, the fare for cars being 50p. The walkway across the top of the bridge structure was open to the public on bank holidays, which was also free.
As of January 2008 the bridge has been closed for crossings while necessary maintenance was carried out.
