St Thomas Bridge

Bridge Street area (renamed Fabian Way)

 

Bridge Street Swansea named because of its proximity to a series of river bridges connecting St Thomas with the main town, used to be a very busy collection of modes of transport. The bridge was initially a swing mechanism carrying both road and tram traffic with gates to block traffic, this was later replaced by a straightforward road bridge. the high level railway bridge immediately adjacent was at the same time removed.

Toady it is a light and open crossing, in times past it was dirty and bustling with foot and road traffic.
