Visiting the Newport Transporter Bridge
Email from a visitor
Just had to say what a wonderful time we had visiting the bridge on your recent open day in the May Bank holiday. We drove up from Kent just to walk on the walkway and it was well worth the trip. Who needs the Sydney harbour bridge when this is in the UK !
We would certainly have paid more than double what we did to walk on the walkway. I`m sure many others would too.. if they only knew about it ! Hope the bridge goes on for another hundred years.
With best wishes and thanks for a wonderful day out !!

How to find the Transporter Bridge
From either Junction 24 or Junction 28 of the M4 take the A48. This is the new dual carriageway Southern Distributor Road which runs right past the Bridge.
Parking is normally easy in Stephenson Street on the East side of the river or there is a car park just off the A48 (follow the yellow signs). Disabled parking is available adjacent to the Bridge and Visitor Centre, which has a disabled-friendly toilet. Parking is free at all these locations.
For sat nav purposes please use the postcode NP20 2SS or you can get directions using this map Please note that the address is NOT Cardiff Road as Google state.
The nearest bus service is Newport Transport No 40/41 from the City Centre.
