Crossed over and back as only the west end steps were open today. The gondola passed under me when I was halfway so I saw how all the mechanisms worked. Also went over and back on the gondola. Sadly ipad crashes when I try to add a few photos. Colin, Ystradgynlais.

Its amazing piece of engineering. Took the trip over on foot and was invited up into motor house to view the motors running, the guys were brilliant at explaining... More

I love the 'open days' on Bank Holidays when you can walk over it; it's got great views and it's a little scary, but ultimately fun. The transporter itself is fun to take by car or on foot. A treasure of a bridge that needs maintaining and preserving. Looks great, particularly at night.

I was watching the repeats of series 3 of Auf Wiedershen Pet on UK Drama a couple of weeks ago in which the Middlesborough Transporter Bridge was part of the plot and I 'd been on that some years ago, I knew that there was one in Wales so I googled it and found out not only was and still... More

Standing by the side of the River Usk, gazing up to the dizzying heights of the walkway hundreds of feet above you really impresses....and then you get to walk across that walkway on Open Days !!

Not very many of these bridges in the country. They are an experience not to be missed. If your brace enough you can walk over the top but only on certain days
