RHYL'S Pont y Draig harbour bridge will be officially opened on October 22.
The multi-million pound cycle and foot bridge which will span the town's harbour had been scheduled to open at the start of September.
The bridge will be opened by Mark Colbourne MBE, London 2012 Paralympic Champion and Leon Jones from Ysgol Maes Owen who inspired the name Pont y Ddraig.
All the children that took part in the bridge naming competition will also be invited to the event.
A spokesman for Denbighshire Council said: "The final handover is now due to take place at the end of September, slightly later than anticipated and some additional work needs to be done on the dunes so the official opening ceremony will now take place on October 22."
The bridge is part of a £9.9million development which will include a public square and a quayside building to create a hub for the harbour, the surrounding dunes and beach areas.
The lightweight, 32 metre long bridge decks are made of glass fibre reinforced polymers and weigh around 8,000kg each.
The project is funded by Denbighshire Council, Sustrans, and the Welsh Government, including the European Regional Development Fund.
It also includes new quay walls with pontoon facilities and a full size slipway, together with a mooring pontoon in the channel for an additional ten boats.
It is expected these additions will provide improved facilities for boat users, such as a pick up point for charter fishing boats and tie-up facilities for visiting boats.
