A487 Caernarfon and Bontnewydd bypass given ‘go-ahead’ in a ‘resounding victory for Plaid Cymru’.

Responding to the news from the Welsh Government’s Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Transport, Ken Skates, that the A487 Caernarfon and Bontnewydd Bypass will proceed, Sian Gwenllian AM for Arfon said,

“This is a resounding victory for Plaid Cymru’s long running campaign to see that the A487 Caernarfon and Bontnewydd bypass goes ahead. Plaid Cymru have long campaigned to see this important development take place and today we welcome the long awaited statement from the Welsh Government.

The new bypass will be a huge boost to both our national and local economies, will strengthen our infrastructure, provide increased employment opportunities for our residents as well as bringing long term social benefits.

I look forward now to seeing the project proceed and will be holding the Welsh Government to account to ensure that progress is completed by 2021 as promised.�
