I enjoyed reading the item on the new Usk bridge (NCE last week). As an interested citizen of Newport I have been informally observing the progress of the scheme since the beginning, and was at times among the crowd of bystanders on Bank Holiday Monday.
Your item con rmed some of my deductions, and answered some of my queries.
What I cannot understand is why there was no mention of our local rm, Rowecord, who fabricated the steelwork, and appeared to be playing a major role in its erection. Did the contractor never mention them to your reporter?
