There have been talk of plans for a new and ‘attractive’ footbridge to replace the subway in Newport and improve access to Newport railway station.

Although plans for the footbridge have been in the pipeline for years, with the scheme previously due to be completed by March 2017, it has been repeatedly delayed.
