A POPULAR footbridge has reopened at a Meirionnydd beauty spot.
The well-used bridge over Afon Dyfi in Dinas Mawddwy has reopened after it was closed two years ago due to concerns about its conditions.
The new Dolybont bridge which is located close to the centre of the village sees the reconnection of a number of popular footpaths in the area.
Work on the new bridge was completed in two phases – a new pillar installed last autumn before the wintery weather, and this year work has been carried out to install the new bridge which has been created by the Caernarfon ironworks company, Brunswick.
Cllr Dafydd Meurig, Gwynedd Council Cabinet member who leads on footpaths said: “We are delighted to see the new Dolybont bridge officially opened.
“It is an important link to a number of popular footpath routes in the Dinas Mawddwy area.
“It is an important local asset located very near to the centre of the village.
“The local commitment of the Mawddwy Community Council and local community enterprise, Nod Glas Cyf has been vital to realising the project and I’d like to thank them along with council officers and everyone involved with the work of ensuring the bridge has reopened.”
