Permanent Route Changes

Natural Resources Wales and the local authorities are continuing to work together to make improvements to the alignment of the Path. The following, in north to south order, are the permanent changes to the route which have been made since the Path opened on 5 May 2012.

Location: New Bridge over the River Alaw, Llanfachraeth, Anglesey

Historically, the Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path had a gap between these locations and, because the only realistic route for walkers was along the busy and potentially dangerous A5025, people were advised to catch the bus.

However, a new bridge, funded by the Welsh Government, European Regional Development Fund and Anglesey County Council, has now been installed across the River Alaw. Also, a new footpath has been created along the south side of the river to link up with it. So, you can now walk right around the island - the bus company’s loss is the walker’s gain!

See Wales Coast Path Map 24 for details of the route.
