The final design of Swansea footbridge across Oystermouth Road has been unveiled. The new structure will seamlessly connect the city centre with Swansea Arena and the Marina, and will become a stepping stone to connect to the beach.
The design of the bridge by Ney and Partners and ACME is intended to celebrate the city through the form and appearance of the bridge.
The pattern on the side panels is inspired by an abstracted silhouette of swans, the result of a close collaboration with the Wales-based artist Marc Rees.
The selected colour and lighting acknowledges the historical link Swansea has to the local copper industry and the feature lighting will be timed to be in synch with the digital facade of Swansea Arena.
