Traffic order

From 18 November, a temporary traffic order will be put in place to cover a 12 month period.

This temporary order allows works on the bridge to take place during this period and does not mean that the road over the A5 Menai Suspension Bridge will be closed for the duration of this period.

Whilst this order is in place pedestrians and dismounted cyclists will still be able to cross the bridge via the footway.
