Llandudno Junction Flyover: Bridge Refurbishment
Work starts: 9 May 2022
Work finishes: 20 July 2022
What is happening?
The Llandudno Junction flyover from the Weekly News roundabout to Conwy town needs refurbishing, to replace the waterproofing, movement joints and drainage. This is a significant project which will be done in two phases – the first phase starts on 9 May 2022 and Phase 2 will be in 2023.
We understand that this work will cause major disruption and inconvenience, because the bridge is a main route into Conwy. It’s because this is a key route that the work is so important, to keep the bridge safe and open for years to come. The bridge was last closed for major work in 1995. We are aiming to carry out the work 7 days a week with some overnight work, to get the work done as quickly as possible.
How will it affect traffic?
The flyover will be closed to traffic during the work. Please follow the signed diversion via the A55 and Conwy tunnel. There will be road access from the Weekly News roundabout to Deganwy, Llandudno Junction and the Tesco roundabout, but not from all directions.
Access will be maintained for pedestrians and cyclists through the site from Conwy to the steps at the Llandudno Junction end of the site, near Lidl.
Why is the work being done in spring and summer?
We need dry weather to complete the work, so it’s not possible to do it in autumn and winter. We have avoided the main school holidays by starting the work after Easter and scheduling it to finish before the summer holidays. Phase 2 will be scheduled at a similar time.
Will the road be reopened for half term and the June bank holiday weekend?
No - the nature of the work doesn’t allow us to make the bridge safe to open to traffic during the schedule.
What are the arrangements for public transport?
Arriva and other bus operators will amend their routes to allow for the diversion. You can check timetables here: www.traveline.cymru
The work does not affect train services.
What are you doing to help local businesses?
There will be “businesses open as usual” signs to let customers know they can still get to the businesses. Coaches will still be able to get in to Conwy, entering from the Bangor direction. To access the coach drop off point on Rose Hill or the coach parking at Morfa Bach, coaches will travel via the one way system along Town Ditch Road and Castle Street.

We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience as we carry out this essential work.
