Llangefni Link Road Project Team Promotes Welsh Language
The team working on a Council-run link road project have been helping to promote the Welsh language.
Alun Griffiths (Contractors) Ltd are constructing Phase 1 and 2 of the Llangefni Link Road on behalf of Isle of Anglesey County Council. The construction of a new road will link the Grŵp Llandrillo Menai Pencraig campus to the B5420 Lon Penmynydd, and then on to the existing Bryn Cefni Business Park road.
The project will enable the growth and expansion of the college campus and provide improved access to the Enterprise Zone sites and improve linkages with the A55 and help overcome traffic constraints in Llangefni.
Recently, the Llangefni site team has been helped to promote use of the Welsh language.
More than 86% (25 out of 29) of the team are Welsh speakers and they recently lent their support to a campaign to promote the Welsh language, which is backed by Mentrau Iaith Cymru and the Assistant Manager of Wales’ Football team, Osian Roberts.
The campaign ‘Pasio’r Bel (Pass the Ball/Bale)’ calls on supporters of Wales’ football team to pass the ball to the next person, symbolising the importance of transferring the Welsh language to others.
Staff from the County Council’s Highways Service were on hand to accept the ball from Alun Griffiths (Contractors) Ltd.
Project Manager for Alun Griffiths (Contractors) Ltd, John Evans, who himself lives in Llangefni said, “The use of the Welsh language in the workplace is extremely important to us as a company and we are proud that such a significant number of the site staff use the language in their work every day.”
Anglesey’s Principal Highways Officer, Huw Percy, added, “This project is providing a significant boost in terms of creating local jobs and supply chain opportunities; but also just as importantly, it is helping to ensure that the Welsh language thrives.”
