Newport Transporter Bridge: £8m fund bid to 'improve visit'

There are hopes an £8m funding bid to improve Newport's Transporter Bridge could help double its annual visitor numbers.

Newport council has applied for Heritage Lottery funding for repairs, maintenance and a bigger visitor centre.

The charity that helps run it hopes it could lead to extended opening hours - attracting 40,000 visitors a year.

Mike Lewis, the council's museums and heritage officer, said he hoped some of the money could be used improve the visitor experience.
