A New Bridge on the Cyclepath at Govilon

There is a new bridge at Govilon on the popular walking and cycling route that links the village to Llanfoist, and is part of National Cycle Route 46.  The original bridge above the B4246 was installed in 1994 on what was previously the railway link between Abergavenny and Brynmawr. After 22 years the wooden A frame structure had reached the end of its life and has been replaced with a new sturdier timber frame to make sure that the many people who use the route can cross it safely in the years to come. The works were made possible by funding from the Welsh Government’s Rights of Way Improvement Plan grant which is overseen by Natural Resource Wales. Further funding also came from the Welsh Government’s Access Grant.
