MOTORISTS driving into Llandudno face delays because of road resurfacing works between the Queen’s and Links roundabouts.

The work started last Monday and are scheduled to be completed by Friday October 25.

A spokesperson for Conwy County Borough Council said: “The northbound side (into town) will be closed overnight from 6pm to 6am between the Queen’s roundabout and Links roundabout. One lane will be open during the day.”

The spokesperson explained the reason for the roadworks: “We resurface a road when the surface layer can no longer be repaired.”

The process consists of six steps: step one, remove the existing surface (this is called planing); step two, clean the surface with a mechanical sweeper; step three, lay a bond coating, to make sure the new surface sticks; step four, lay the new surface; step five. compact and level the new surface with rollers; step six, repaint the road markings.”

The spokesperson added: “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.”

Motorists were advised to follow the signed diversion via Craig-y-Don and allow extra time for their journeys.
