Britannia Bridge

Project Completed: 1972

About the project

The Britannia Bridge is located across the Menai Strait between the island of Anglesey and mainland Wales. Following a fire in 1970, the original wrought iron structure was rebuilt as a two-tier steel truss arch bridge, carrying both road and rail traffic.

In total, the 461m long structure consists of two water, and two land spans. The water spans consist of the braced arch structures while the land spans are longitudinal steel plate girders. Cleveland Bridge were responsible for the design, supply and erection of 4,040 te of steelwork.
