""The proposed River Usk crossing was intended to be a landmark structure and an impressive feature to the championship course, attracting considerable further international attention and prestige to The Celtic Manor Resort.
The bridge was designed as a rod stayed bridge with a main span of 95m and two end spans of 15m. The deck needed to support a 4.2m wide carriageway to accommodate pedestrians and lightweight maintenance vehicles. There were also provision for roads and car parks in this location for access to the main resort.
There were a total of 51 planning conditions which had to be addressed on this project, mostly, in the interest of nature conservation and aquatic environment
A comprehensive Environmental Plan had to be developed with the aid of a specialist ecologist in order to address some of the planning conditions.
A full time ecologist was also employed, by Andrew Scott, for the duration of the contract.
