“It’s costing £160,000 per hour to hire the crane”,

“It’s the world’s largest crane”,

“The last piece of the bridge is being fitted by a smaller crane on Tuesday as it’s too expensive to use the large one”

These were just some of the things that were being said as the third piece of the Pont Y Werin bridge was being set into place meticulously by Europe’s largest crane. This crane could be seen from most parts of Cardiff whilst assisting in completeing the missing part of the Cardiff Bay circuit across the River Ely. When open this will enable a 6.5 mile circular route around Cardiff Bay! Built with funding from The National Lottery Fund Cardiff Council and Sustrans this will really open up the area around Cardiff’s International Pool and Penarth Marina.

PS many thanks to The Oystercatcher pub for supplying free coffee to the many people who turned up in the torrential rain to catch this spectacular! Was appreciated. Pont y Werin will officially open to the public on June 8th
