Grant for new cycling routes.

A pounds 357,000 grant awarded to Anglesey Council will allow two important infrastructure schemes in Llangefni and Holyhead to go ahead. The Llangefni Cycling/Pedestrian Improvement Scheme receives pounds 285,000 to help create a new cycle and pedestrian route through the town, Dingle nature reserve and on to the Cefni Reservoir.

The pedestrian/cycling routes between Menai Bridge and Llanfairpwll and Holyhead to Valley will be completed through this funding. The Holyhead Transport and Environmental Package receives the remaining pounds 72,000 which will fund preliminary designs for a new bridge linking the town centre and coach park on Victoria Road with the railway station and adjacent Port terminal building. Anglesey Council's Director of Highways, Dewi Rowlands, said the grant was another important step towards creating significant transport and environmental improvements in both towns.
