Taff Vale – New Pedestrian Footbridge

DarntonB3 Commercial

Following our appointment to design a major mixed use scheme in Pontypridd, we have now been asked to lead the design of a new pedestrian footbridge which will connect the new mixed-use development with a fine historic park.

The new bridge will link a major new piece of public realm within the new Taff Vale development with the existing historic and hugely popular Ynysagharad Park across the River Taff. The new bridge is also intended to form an integral part of a new pedestrian circular route which will include a new river side walkway.

The aspiration in the bridge design is to compliment the nearby iconic listed William Edwards Bridge with an elegant, sleek contemporary structure.

Stage 3 design and engagement with key stakeholders is now underway as well as ecological and ground investigation surveys. A planning application will be made in July 2018.
