Thomas Telford was ICE's first president and is famous for building roads, bridges and canals. In his lifetime, Telford constructed over 1,000 miles of highway and was nicknamed 'the Colossus of Roads'.
The London to Holyhead Road is widely recognised as one of Telford's greatest engineering achievements particularly its landmark Menai Straights suspension bridge, then the longest suspension bridge in the world.
The road constructed in 1815, provided dramatic improvements to the route through north Wales and proved most beneficial to the growing stagecoach traffic between newly unified England and Ireland. It was the first civil engineering project to be funded directly by Parliament.
Jamie Quartermaine will present his paper, published in ICE Proceedings (May 2007). The paper described the north Wales section which, two centuries on, is still very much in use.
Speaker: Jamie Quartermaine BA Hons Surv Dip MCIfA
