Penarth Headland Link

In Brief
  • Coastal walkway/cycleway
  • SSSI/SAC/Ramsar site
  • Contemporary landmark
  • Link with Cardiff Bay
The Penarth Headland Link provides a coastal link for pedestrians and cyclists between Cardiff Bay Barrage and Penarth. A stressed ribbon steel structure supports an elevated deck spanning cantilevered piers. As environmental coordinators, Soltys Brewster worked with the London based design team (Patel Taylor and Techniker) to minimise the footprint of the works within the internationally protected Severn Estuary and produced the ES for the successful planning application.
