Grimshaw Architects have sent us images of Newport City Footbridge, which opened in the Welsh city before Christmas.

The bridge is supported by a crane structure mounted on the river's west bank, which references the wharf cranes that once lined the river.

Two pairs of masts - one 70m high and one 80m high - support the 145m deck.
