First look of new Devon Place to Queensway footbridge revealed

An artist’s impression of how the proposed new footbridge could look to replace Devon Place subway is to go before planners.

The design has been submitted on behalf of Newport City Council after Welsh Government agreed financial support for the initial stage of the project.

The new footbridge tasked designers with both technical and structural challenges to connect Devon Place with Queensway.

A spokesperson for the Council said:

“The construction of a footbridge over a busy station is a considerable logistical challenge and requires track procession, which is only possible a few times a year.

“The Council will need to work closely with Norse and Network Rail to facilitate this.

“In the meantime we will continue to clean the subway daily and pressure wash it weekly.

“The planning application will be made public on the Council’s website and any comments will be welcome.”
