A busy 102-year-old railway bridge in Cardiff will be shut for more than a year so it can be rebuilt.

Windsor Road bridge, which connects Adamsdown with Splott and is on the south Wales main line, will be closed from January 2015 to spring 2016.

Network Rail Wales said the bridge must be replaced with a larger, stronger crossing.

It will be gradually demolished and Cardiff council will set up a diversion.
