The Chain Link Arches were a public art installation beneath Brunel’s impressive viaduct across the River Rhondda in Pontypridd in 2010. Consisting of coloured floodlights that lit up the underside of the arches as dusk turned to night, they made a somewhat eerie sight.
Although I can’t find any reference to it online, and unfortunately RCT’s own website doesn’t leave old news articles published (grrrr), I’ve a memory of reading that this was conceived along with Unity to help promote Pontypridd. I must be mistaken on that part, because the Chain Link Arches have so few hits on Google that it is as if no-one knew it was there 🙁
Unfortunately, I’ve been unable to find out anything more about this piece of art. If you know who the artist was, when it was first installed, and when it was finally removed, I’d love to hear from you in the comments below!
