A ceremony has taken place to mark the official opening of Town Quay Bridge which links Newton Abbot and Kingsteignton

The bridge and the section of the Teign Estuary Trail were officially opened by Devon County Council Chairman Jerry Brook and Sustrans’ South West Regional Director Adrian Roper.

The scheme, which has cost around £3 million in total, has been funded by Devon Council Council with a £500,000 contribution from Sustrans, as part of the charity’s Connect 2 project to create new cycling and walking links across the UK with funding from the Big Lottery.

Almost 3,000 cycling trips have been made over the bridge since it opened to the public just under a month ago.
