Newport Transporter Bridge Gondola

The 35 ton 'gondola' of the Transporter Bridge is suspended by cables from a horizontal beam which is 54 metres above the high water level. It can carry six cars at a time, and there is space at each side for pedestrians. The span of the crossing over the River Usk is 197 metres.
