Lewis and Lewis were recently commissioned to oversee as Project Managers the development of a vast new bridge designed to run over the River Usk and alongside The Twenty Ten Course at the Celtic Manor Resort.

The 120-metre long, 14-foot wide, cable stayed bridge will transport players and spectators to the new practice ground for the 2010 Ryder Cup.

The £2 million twin-suspension bridge completes a £16 million investment by the Celtic Manor Resort in building a new course, clubhouse and surrounding infastructure, developments that were set to be delivered for one of sport’s biggest events which was awarded to Wales back in 2001.

Primarily a footbridge for spectators, the bridge however will also be able to carry golf buggies transporting players and officials as well as emergency vehicles.

The bridge has also been designed with close attention to the environmental and ecological sensitivities of the tidal River Usk. A six-metre exclusion zone on either side of the river bank protects otter holts and ensures the migrating patterns and shad fish are not affected.
