Landslide closes the Anglesey section of the A545 again

The A545 has been closed again following a small landslide between Menai Bridge and Beaumaris on Anglesey.

The landslide between Bryn Teg Lane at Llandegfan and Allt Goch Bach at Beaumaris happened at around 9pm on Wednesday. It also caused a gas leak.

According to Anglesey Council, the road is likely to remain closed until Friday evening whilst debris still needs to be cleared and a new retaining wall built. Gas engineers have fixed the leak.

In March the Welsh government announced it is would provide an additional £75,000 of funding for slope stabilisation work along the road to improve resilience on the route, and the council has agreed to commission designs for strengthening and improving the road.

The funding was in addition to £374,000 announced in February by the Welsh government to support the local authority with repair costs caused by extreme weather in November 2017 that triggered ground movement which closed the route for several days.
