The face of Newport is changing dramatically with more exciting new developments underway.

Completed projects and investments have already delivered huge transformation for the city including a world class university campus, state of the art business premises, a new railway station, revamped market, new bus station, iconic architecture and a new waterfront district providing riverside homes and leisure opportunities.
