RAISED AT PUBLIC MEETING 10-04-2014
There are relatively shallow paths that run from both ends of the bridge down to the A4143, but both have shallow steps that stop them being useful to cyclists. This means that people heading out of the hospital wanting to cycle down the A4143 towards Llanfoist have to cross the road with the traffic, rather than the safer alternative of crossing the bridge and coming down the ramp.
Note that openstreetmap's map of this is incorrect. I'll submit a correction (11-04-2014)
