This iconic and extremely rare type of bridge is makes a fabulous place to visit. It is still in operation for most of the year but nowadays only in a scaled down way, as it is operated now more like a museum piece by Newport Council. If you've got a head for heights, it's well worth bying a ticket to walk across the top of it! Amazing - if a tad windy.

We decided to visit here on recommendation of a friend. It was only a pound to take the car over and it is actually really quick to cross. It is an amazing piece of engineering and well worth visiting if in the area. It wasn't busy when we crossed so had plenty of space between the cars to wander around. When its busy there is a seating area where you can get out of your car and sit in.

We promised the children a walk over this next time we were in the area. We did they did and we all enjoyed.

Newport City Council, the owners of the transporter bridge could do much more to advertise the bridge's existence. It is certainly an experience to cross, either on foot, bike or car.
If you can get there on an Open Day, and have the strength/fitness, you can climb the stairs of the structure and cross over the river via the ariel walkway that spans the bridge and carries the road gondola below.
Why no brown Historic Site signs pointing to the bridge from the M4 Newport Council?

Its a great piece of engineering but thats all it is. theres not that much information there about anything else to do with newport and on the odd occasion that its actually open its just a bit flat.
