Lliswerry and Alway pedestrian subway, locally known as the cattle bridge.

We are calling for an overview of the area, ensuring the area is constantly cut back from overgrowth on both sides, anti-vandal lighting located throughout the subway that is always on 24/7, CCTV fitted  both sides of the pedestrian subway and the slime on the walls jet washed regularly. 

Newport City Council and our elected Ward Councillors need to set this as a priority, we had the warnings, let's not wait until it's too late. 

The cattle bridge had 31 reported crimes in 2016. Already in the first quarter of 2017 it has logged 9 separate incidents, this is up from 5 cases raised for the same period for 2016.
