The deck for the new Swansea bridge over Oystermouth Road has finally arrived on site. Fabricated by SHS in Yorkshire, who also made our Leicester footbridge, the deck arrived in 4 parts on low loaders, travelling overnight. The as yet missing arch of the bridge  will arrive over the coming days in arch segments.  The deck and arch segments will be welded together in October, ready for installation next year.
The entire bridge has been cut and bent from one continuous thin sheet of steel. The sides of the arch have been laser cut with a swan pattern that will come to life at night as a coloured glowing lantern.
The 49 metre long bridge is a key link for Swansea Central Phase, connecting the city centre to the new Swansea Arena and coastal park and strengthening the connection between the city and the beach.
