The Anglesey AM Leuan Wyn Jones has called for a third crossing across the North Wales Menai Strait. The issue was discussed with the Transport Minister Edwina Hart on June 5th.
Mr Jones raised the points that the traffic in mornings and particularly late afternoons was getting considerably worse.
He also asked the Welsh Assembly to consider short term measures to help ease traffic flow to and from the North Wales town of Anglesey. Mr Jones said;
“Following my questions to Edwina Hart today, I am very pleased that the Welsh Government is looking at short term measures to alleviate congestion on the Britannia Bridge at peak times, and I look forward to getting more details shortly.
“We must also keep up the pressure for the longer term solution of a third crossing”
It was reported that almost every lifeboat crew in North Wales was called out this weekend. The hot weather attracted many into the sea, some not taking all necessary precautions.
With many incidents reported in Rhyl, Llandudno and Black Rock Sands the emergency services have had a very busy two days.
With the weather set to hold out it’s being advised by the authorities that everyone should enjoy themselves but stay safe at all times.
A 35m high giant wheel apparently brought in more than 1,000 people to Beaumaris during the hot weekend.
The Beaumaris Eye provides fantastic views over the rooftops of the town and castle and across to Snowdonia. Pip Cockeram, press officer for the wheel, said: “The first weekend has been a massive success, we think around 1,000 people have been on the wheel over the first two days and the feedback has been very positive.
The eye has 24 gondolas that will take passengers on rides until 9th June. Sited on The Green, the eye was the brainchild of eight local business people who joined together to underwrite the hiring cost in the hope that the Eye will draw in visitors.
A trip on the eye costs £5 per adult and £3.50 for children.
