Residents in Denbighshire are having their say on a £4M bridge proposal for the Foryd Harbour at Rhyl.
The bridge, spanning 80m, has been designed by Dawnus Construction and engineer Gifford and includes two walkways for walkers and cyclists, which will lift to allow boats to pass.
The plans for the nautical-style bridge are on display at the town’s Wellington Road Community Centre where the public are being asked to give their opinions on the ideas.
Denbighshire council said: “It is really important that local people have their say on the developments and help it shape Rhyl’s future.”
Dawnus and Gifford were awarded the contract by the council, the Welsh Assembly Government and sustainable transport charity Sustrans. Funding from the Big Lottery Fund through Sustrans and European money will pay for its construction, which is expected to be completed by the middle of 2011.
Councillor David Thomas, the cabinet lead member for regeneration, said: “Enhancing facilities at the Foryd Harbour and constructing the new bridge would provide a major boost to the local tourism industry, will help make the area more attractive to residents and visitors and will encourage inward investment.”
