"All systems go" for bridge restoration


It’s “all systems go” for a major project to restore and re-open the world-famous Chain Bridge in Llangollen.
That was the message from town clerk Gareth Thomas to members at Tuesday’s monthly meeting of the town council.

Mr Thomas reported that the county council had just offered to contribute another £15,000 towards the ambitious scheme on condition that all the money was spent.
To ensure this is the case, he told members that the cash would be placed in a special reserved bank account.

The town clerk also reported that Welsh historic monuments agency Cadw had recently agreed to support the restoration of the bridge on the basis that it lies within the World Heritage site.
Mr Thomas told members: “It’s all systems go and we are still trying to get as much money as we can to take the project forward.”

  1. “It’s all systems go and we are still trying to get as much money as we can to take the project forward.” I've spoken and written English all my life and I know mutually-exclusive terms when I hear them. All systems still on hold, surely?
