Floating pontoon

Floating Pontoon on Swansea Marina

Installed on the river Tawe, the pontoon provides an easy access point to SA1 and the city centre.

Visitors can now tie up during out of hours and use the local shops and facilities

The fishing community have also welcomed the new pontoon. Both commercial and charter boats can now easily fish at night and those caught out in rough weather are guaranteed a safe haven in the river whatever the time or weather, using the safe and easily accessible steps down to the pontoon.

The pontoon is also an important safety feature in case of emergency. Casualties or crew can be taken off of boats when the Tawe lock is closed or when speed is of the essence. The lifeboat can also leave broken down vessels on the pontoon, greatly decreasing their ‘turn around’ time.
