a: Perhaps because of the construction of a pedestrian overhead bridge to the railway station.
b:  Owing to the strong Irish presence in the town - perhaps in relationship to Newbridge in Ireland.

For whatever reason - the Railway Station, The Post Office and the Village all were re-named 'Newbridge".
