The Menai Bridge was opened in January 1826 and with the Conwy Bridge, opened in July that year, these engineering achievements completed the Holyhead Road, designed by Thomas Telford, who celebrated his seventieth birthday that year. The normally imperturbable engineer suffered from sleep deprivation as he anxiously worried about the slinging of the first suspension chain across the 579 foot span. The construction is recorded by L T C Rolt in his biography 'Thomas Telford', Longmans, Green & Co, London, 1958. He also writes vividly of the first mail coach crossing the bridge after midnight on 30 January, with the wind getting up and rain on the way
