PRESS RELEASE : Welsh Conservative welcome third Menai Bridge proposal [December 2022]

The press release issued by the Welsh Conservatives on 14 December 2022.

The Welsh Conservatives have welcomed indications from the Welsh Government that a third bridge linking Anglesey to Great Britain is “very likely”.

Commenting, Welsh Conservative Shadow Transport Minister Natasha Asghar MS said:

“I fully support a third Menai bridge between Ynys Môn and North Wales, and look forward to this becoming a reality.

“We have seen from residents in Anglesey just how difficult it has been for them – whether they’re workers or business owners – with the one of the two current bridges being closed after years of neglect.

“Having three functioning bridges will be a huge boost to the economy and hugely complement a potential freeport and reopening of the Wylfa nuclear power plant.

“We now need Labour ministers in Cardiff Bay to also end their ban on roadbuilding, scrap plans for 20mph default speed limits across Wales, and the 50mph zones on major roads because we can’t accelerate economic growth if politicians are slowing us down.”
