Changes to Llandudno Junction flyover refurbishment work
Conwy County Borough Council has announced changes to the refurbishment work on the Llandudno Junction Flyover, starting in early May.
Previously, the work to replace the waterproofing and expansion joints on the bridge was planned in two phases for 2022 and 2023.
This year’s work has now been divided into two periods, to avoid disruption in July and to allow traffic to continue to use the flyover into Conwy. This will also assist scheduled bus routes to continue in Conwy.
The work will take longer overall, but the first period of work will finish before the end of June, with the second period starting in September.
When the work begins on 9 May, one lane of Conwy Bridge will be open, with three-way traffic lights on the Weekly News roundabout to manage vehicles.
Traffic between Weekly News roundabout and Tesco roundabout (Ffordd 6G) will be one-way only. Ffordd 6G will have the same vehicle restrictions as the A55.Drivers heading from Tesco towards Llandudno will need to follow the diversion via the A55 to Black Cat roundabout (J19).
This first period of work will finish by 23 June 2022.
The second period of work will begin on 5 September, with traffic management in place until 15 October 2022.
A Council spokesperson said: “The changes avoid a diversion through Conwy Tunnel and make it easier for those using public transport to access Conwy. We’d still advise motorists to allow for delays at the Weekly News roundabout and to use alternative routes where possible.”
