The foot and cycle bridge earmarked for Cardiff and Penarth is one of 79 projects across the UK that make up the Connect2 lottery bid. If Connect2 wins, Pont y Werin will receive £1.15 towards it being built.

The 140 metre bridge would enable pedestrians and cyclists to cross between Penarth at Cogan and the International Sports Village at Cardiff Bay. It would also open to allow the passage of river traffic.

Cardiff: the Ely River Connection

Cardiff - This proposal to open a bridge over the Ely River will complete a 6.5 mile (10.5 Kilometres) circuit around Cardiff Bay. It will make for a glorious walk or cycle ride and become a favourite promenade for residents and visitors alike. At present there are two breaks in the circuit – the Roath Basin link and the crossing of the Ely River. Cardiff has been waiting for this bridge, which will serve as an excellent leisure and commuter route.

Everyone must vote for Connect2 to win!
