Default Newport Transporter Bridge - November 2012 - 26-11-2012, 09:57

11/2012
Visited with Millhouse, Leaf and Madhat

This was my first transporter bridge and hopefully there will be more to come. We had decided to have a go at this before heading over to London the next day. Although the weather was very foggy and we couldn't even see most of the bridge from the ground, we decided to have a go at it anyway, as we wouldn't get another chance over the weekend. I was glad we went ahead, as the fog gave the bridge a very eerie feel. After all, this wasn't really about the landscape shots, it was about the bridge itself. It just means i will probably go back in the new year!

History


The Newport Transporter Bridge (Welsh: Pont Gludo Casnewydd) is a transporter bridge that crosses the River Usk in Newport, South Wales. It is a Grade I listed structure. Designed by French engineer Ferdinand Arnodin, it was built in 1906 and opened by Godfrey Charles Morgan, 1st Viscount Tredegar on 12 September 1906. The span is an example of the very rare transporter bridge concept, of which only eight remain in use worldwide.The bridge is the crossing lowest on the River Usk.
