Road Resurfacing: A547, Conway Road, Dolwyd, Colwyn Bay

Works starts: Monday 6 January 2020
Works finish: Friday 31 January 2020 (weather permitting)

We have prioritised Conway Road for resurfacing, as part of our ongoing investment to improve our road network.

What is happening?
We are resurfacing Conway Road from Black Cat roundabout to Dolwyd village. The road will be closed in the evening and overnight during the first week. After this, traffic will be escorted through the works in convoy. Premier Inn and the Afon Conwy pub will be open as usual – please follow the signed directions.

What is resurfacing?
We resurface a road when the surface layer can no longer be repaired.

Step 1 - remove the existing surface (this is called planing)

Step 2 - clean the surface with a mechanical sweeper

Step 3 - lay a bond coating, to make sure the new surface sticks

Step 4 - lay the new surface

Step 5 - compact and level the new surface with rollers

Step 6 - repaint the road markings

Resurfacing is a noisy and dusty process, and we are sorry for the inconvenience this might cause. The new road surface will provide a smoother, quieter ride and will be a long lasting benefit to the community.

If you need more information, please contact the Advice Team at erf@conwy.gov.uk or telephone 01492 575337.

Thank you for your patience while we carry out this improvement work.
