Is The Incredible Deconstructing Clock Demolished?!  (9 Answers)

I'm planning a 2 weeks vacation in UK.

I read with great interest from M0B1US's Newport Travel Guide about the "In the Nick of Time" kinetic clock at John Frost Square and I started looking online for more info about this clock. (

Along with some interesting write up about the clock, I chanced upon a pdf "Planning Application Schedule" dated 17 May 2006 mentioning the removal of this clock as part of the redevelopment of John Frost Square. ( I couldnt quite believe what I read.

It didnt help when I chanced yet upon Page 5 of "Newport Matters - the official newspaper of Newport City Council" (

"The iconic new bridge structure is in place, highways
improvements are underway and one of the city centre’s
worst eyesores has reduced to rubble."

So is it true that The Incredible Deconstrucing Clock is removed? I was planning to see this clock after M0B1US's interesting writeup. And from there, I was intending to walk uphill to the St Woolos Cathedral. If there are so much construction going on, I'll give Newport a pass.

How long a walk from the bus to the train station?  (2 Answers)

Judging from what I've found on google it takes about 15 minutes to walk from the bus station - National Express stop - to the train station. However, I wasn't able to find a good map, so I pieced this together from the "how to get there" infos of some hotels. Does anybody know if it is about 15 minutes? Or much longer?
I'm still trying to find the best way to get to Abergavenny and Brecon and an open jaw ticket by National Express seems to be really good.
Thanks for any help.
