Knight's flood-resistant bridge approved

WSP and Knight Architects' Abergavenny-to-Llanfoist bridge

Crossing will provide quieter route for cyclists and pedestrians

Knight Architects has won planning for a timber-clad pedestrian and cycle bridge across the River Usk in South Wales.

The 61m glulam structure will connect the town of Abergavenny and the village of Llanfoist. They are currently served by a narrow grade II*-listed highway bridge of medieval origins.

Knight Architects and WSP were commissioned by Monmouthshire council to design a quieter and safer route away from the highway which allows pedestrians and cyclists to enjoy the green areas on both banks.
