About the project
The five-star Celtic Manor Resort secured funding to construct a new £83m, 5,000-delegate International Convention Centre within its extensive parkland. The existing single-lane bridge over the M4 used to access the site would be inadequate for the increased volume of traffic that would need to access the new convention centre.
Alun Griffiths chose Cleveland Bridge to fabricate, supply and install a new bridge, to be built immediately east of the existing motorway bridge. The two bridges will each provide oneway access for traffic either entering or exiting the resort and convention centre.
The 150 tonne bridge was constructed from 2.3m-wide weathering steel box girders measuring 50.5m long.
