POLICE are reporting that people are ignoring the one way system signs on the bridge at Llanrwst

Traffic measures have been put in place as up to 150,000 visitors are expected in the area, due to the Eisteddfod.

The festival organisers have worked with police, local authorities and other partners, as well as a specialist traffic management company to put temporary arrangements in place that will maintain the flow of traffic throughout the area.

Those wishing to access areas on the northern side of Pont-y-Pair are requested to follow the diversions into Llanrwst, over the bridge and onto the B5106.

Eisteddfod traffic on the A470 entering Llanrwst from the Llandudno direction will not travel through Llanrwst town centre.
