After planners in Denbighshire backed the project, it will provide the final link in 15 miles (24km) of traffic-free cycling across Conwy and Denbighshire.

Boat users say the new bridge could leave them stranded outside the harbour if its raising mechanisms fail.

But officials say they have secured funding for a new safe mooring on the approach to the harbour, in the event the new bridge cannot be opened.

The proposed bridge crosses the harbour seaward of the Blue Bridge at the Foryd Harbour.

The Blue Bridge is currently the only gap on the cycle route and cyclists have to dismount to cross over the water.

The council says that even this leaves little room to pass pedestrians.

The vote on Wednesday in favour of the proposals was passed with 18 councillors in favour, one against and with one abstention.

Value: £8.6m

Completion Date: October 2013

Contract Period: 66 weeks

Client: Denbighshire County Council

This contract is for the design and construction of the new Foryd Harbour Cycle and Pedestrian Bridge, with associated public square and quay wall extension in Rhyl.

The iconic structure provides a single leaf bascule opening span over the navigable channel, giving unlimited clearance. To balance the lift, the back-span also lifts mirroring its twin. A single Duplex stainless steel mast nearly 50m tall houses a pulley mechanism and associated lift cables, providing a visual declaration of the bridge's presence that will be visible from miles around and will also provide a central focus within the harbour. The mast is stayed by a system of rigging similar to that seen on many sailing boats. To accommodate the central mast, each deck splits to permit a 3 metre walkway on either side.

Dawnus worked collaboratively with the Client and design team during the design development stages taking into account the environmental constraints and the requirements of the local area. During this period it was recognised that there was a need to provide a sheltered area for boats downstream of the bridge. The proposals for a new quay wall were therefore developed in the form of a 7.5m high Redi Rock retaining wall with associated pontoon facilities.

The project was awarded a Bronze Considerate Constructors Scheme Award and the 2014 ICE Wales Special Award for Regeneration.

The design of a new £4m bridge for walkers and cyclists has been unveiled for Rhyl harbour in Denbighshire.

The bridge spanning 80m has been given a nautical design, and two walkways will lift to allow boats to pass.

The contract has been awarded by the local council, Welsh Assembly Government and sustainable transport charity Sustrans.

Glyn Evans of Sustrans said it would be a "great centrepiece" to regeneration plans for the seaside town.

The work has been awarded to contractor Dawnus and engineers Gifford, and the bridge is expected to be ready by the middle of 2011.

If plans are passed by councillors, the crossing over the Foryd Harbour will link into a network of new and existing walking and cycling routes in the heart of Rhyl's regeneration area.

Leighton Andrews, deputy regeneration minister, said it would provide a "distinctive, eye-catching, iconic landmark and set a new high standard of design that will mark the start of a new era for the town".


Denbighshire council's lead member for regeneration, David Thomas, said there would be "extensive consultation" over the next few months with residents, businesses and local groups.

A model of the bridge, and details of regeneration plans for West Rhyl will go on display in July in Rhyl and Kinmel Bay.

The bridge is funded by the Big Lottery Fund through Sustrans and European money.
