Fresh talks over a third bridge crossing the Menai Strait have begun, a senior Welsh Government minister has revealed. The National Grid are planning to build an underwater tunnel to connect electricity cables from the proposed new Wylfa Newydd nuclear power plant. The structure, which will cost in the region of £100m to built, will be sunk under the seabed between Anglesey and Gwynedd. But the Welsh Government has revealed that they want a bridge to be built instead of the tunnel, which would be a ‘shared crossing’ capable of carrying car and other vehicles as well as cables across the Strait.
