You may still cross the A5 Menai Suspension Bridge’s footways as a pedestrian or walking with your bike (dismounted cyclist).

What we are doing

UK Highways A55 Ltd are replacing hangers on the A5 Menai Suspension Bridge.

Why are we doing it

We need to improve the bridge’s safety.

Next steps

UK Highways A55 Ltd will carry out the improvements. CADW will monitor the works to ensure the listed structure is protected.

We are planning to reopen the bridge in early 2023 to traffic weighing 7.5 tonnes and below.

The hanger replacement programme and further details are being finalised.

Due to the bridge closure and issues we are reviewing plans in case the A55 Britannia Bridge is closed in extreme events.
