DETAILS of the proposals to improve the A55 junctions at Penmaenmawr and Llanfairfechan are to be made public.

In April, Transport Minister Ken Skates announced Option D as the preferred route to replace the roundabout at Junction 15 Llanfairfechan and Option A selected for Junction 16 Penmaenmawr and Dwygyfylchi.

For Junction 15, Option D would allow movement on and off the A55 in four directions, two eastbound and two westbound, by utilising an over-bridge with a T-junction to the north of the A55 and a priority junction to the south of the existing roundabout. The slip roads to the north would be raised locally to allow the bridge to pass over the A55.

Option A at Junction 16 would provide a four-way movement, replacing junction 16A. The roundabout at 16 would be replaced by westbound on and off slip roads. The junction 16A arrangement would include an over-bridge and slip roads would be constructed on raised embankments.

A new link road would be constructed, running parallel to the A55, linking back into Ysguborwen Road. Construction could start in summer 2021 and be completed by the end of 2022.

The information sessions where people can see further details and learn more about the preferred options will be held on June 25 at St Gwynin’s Parish Hall, Dwygyfylchi, June 26 at Maen Alaw Community Centre, Penmaenmawr and June 27 at Llanfairfechan Community Centre. All exhibits will take place between 10am and 8pm.

Transport Minister Ken Skates said: “Replacing the roundabouts at Junction 15 and 16 with height separated junctions will improve journey times and make this section of the A55 safer for all road users.

“This is a significant part of our proposals to improve North Wales transport infrastructure over the coming years.”
