New Menai Strait bridge being considered

The Welsh Government insisted a new bridge over the Menai Strait is just one of the proposals being considered.

Plans for a third bridge crossing from Anglesey to the mainland are back on the agenda.

Queues on the existing Menai and Britannia bridges are a source of frustration for drivers, especially during the rush hour.

The Welsh Government said it has "carried out investigations and consulted with the public over proposals for a new bridge crossing which would relieve congestion across Britannia Bridge. Later this year consultants will be appointed to develop these proposals."
