First Two Sections of the Llangefni Link Road Opened By Ken Skates
On 13th March Sections 1 & 2 of the £4 million Llangefni Link Road was opened by Economy and Infrastructure Secretary Ken Skates.
The project, which has been funded by the Welsh Government, Isle of Anglesey County Council, Grŵp Llandrillo-Menai and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, will allow for major expansion of Grŵp Llandrillo Menai’s Coleg Menai, Llangefni Campus. Once fully complete, the new link road willl run from the A5114 junction with the Llangefni Industrial Estate, circling the south and east of the town before crossing the B5420 and connecting to the Coleg Menai site, providing traffic relief for the town centre.
Mr Skates said: “It will provide the transport links necessary to allow a major expansion of Coleg Menai, enabling it in turn to provide the high-quality education and training that will allow people to secure the job opportunities arising from new developments and economic growth in the area.”
Cllr Ieuan Williams, Council Leader and major projects portfolio holder, added: “The link road project is a great example of how infrastructure improvements can be an enabler and catalyst for significant economic growth.
“This project will allow Grŵp Llandrillo Menai’s Coleg Menai campus to expand and offer a wide range of training and skills linked with proposed major energy-related developments on the island.
“It also plays a vital role in our efforts to develop Llangefni and fulfil its potential as a strategic employment and education hub for the wider region.”
