The swing bridge which allows pedestrians to cross Penarth Marina from Town Quay has been closed pending a review of its operations
The bridge has been in operation since the inner basin of the Marina was first opened.
It is controlled from the Marina Harbourmaster’s Office but pedestrians can press a button to close the bridge when necessary. The only other pedestrian route across the Marina is via the top of the inner lock gates – otherwise pedestrians have to walk the long-way around via Penarth Portway.
Penarth Quay Marina manager Stuart Jones apologises for the inconvenience but says s “the swing bridge is out of action whist a full review of its operation is undertaken”.
The bridge won’t be returned to use until Quay Marinas are satisfied that it is functioning correctly. The firm says the safety of users is paramount.
