Footbridge installed in Ystradgynlais
|27th February 2018|
A new footbridge has been installed along a popular footpath in south Powys by the county council.
Powys County Council's Countryside Services team installed the footbridge along the public footpath that goes across Ystradgynlais' Diamond Park and into the Wern Plemys Nature Reserve. The new structure has replaced the old and decaying footbridge.
New foundations were installed before the new footbridge was installed, which has been supplied by Caerfagu Products of Nantmel.
Cllr Jonathan Wilkinson, Cabinet Member for Countryside Services, said: "I'm delighted that walkers in this area will benefit from the new footbridge.
"Access to the site was challenging for staff from our Countryside Services team but their work provides a much needed improvement to this popular walking route in the community of Ystradgynlais.
"The importance of locally available public paths shouldn't be underestimated. Our public rights of way network can play a vital role in maintaining the health and well-being of the people of Powys."
