Heron’s Wing Bridge Replacement Project

Project Applicants: WWT (Herons Bridge)

Project title: Heron’s Wing Bridge Replacement Project

Anchor Programme: Sustainable Communities

Location: Llanelli

This project will address the urgent replacement of the existing timber on Heron’s Wing Hide Bridge, a prominent visual piece that spans the Millennium Coastal Path and is part of the Wales Coast Path.

The bridge has been assessed by a structural engineer as ‘vulnerable to failure in the immediate future’. The new bridge will increase visitors and create over 50 volunteering opportunities.
