I wandered past yesterday and was amazed at how small it looks, well, except for the island. I'd be amazed if traffic could pass as you say. :huh1:

The Bridge will open today at 4pm

Councillors have justed received notification form the Head of Highways:

"I am delighted to advise that Maesdu Bridge will be fully open to all traffic as of 4pm today. There will be some minor finishing works which will be carried out over the next week or two but these works will involve little or no traffic management".

Splendid news Jason -  does this mean that Builder Street will be deserted? (Only joking)

I am sure the trades people on the West Shore will be pleased - it's been a long time.

I've just driven over the brand new bridge in my brand new car. A bit of an anti-climax really!

Is it as narrow as it looks in the photos, Paddy?  :o

I'd guess it's a similar width to the old one Dave. It was actually quite busy with people turning around in the entrance to Fairways and going back over.

I think the new roundabout could be quite tricky for some of the larger vehicles to negotiate. It's really quite tight and I can envision the lights coming back in the near furure for it to be enlarged somehow!

In a daze of disbelief perhaps?   :o

Thinking about it, I suppose there has to be a minimum width for such roads, so it was just the camera angle that made it look small.

What a difference since the bridge opened no more queues on maesdu road going towards the links hotel, it was a nightmare getting in from Gwydyr road now it`s a doddle. :) :)

Shall we have a competition to guess the length of time before one of the glass lamp globes on the bridge is broken by vandals? I'll go for 2 weeks....  :(
