CONWY COUNTY Borough Council are considering making revisions to the planned roadworks on the Llandudno Junction flyover bridge.

The first of two phases of work to replace the waterproofing, movement joints and drainage on the bridge is due to start on May 9 and is planned to last for 11 weeks.

Under the original (and as of yet existing) plan, the road would be closed to vehicles during the work, with a diversion via the A55 and Conwy tunnel.

This would also result in the Weekly News roundabout also being affected, with traffic still able to access Deganwy, Llandudno Junction and the Tesco roundabout – but not from all directions with the section of the roundabout between the flyover and the new road into Deganwy to be closed in order to limit traffic between the Ffordd 6g road and this eastern section of the roundabout.

However, the Council believe this may create a build up of traffic with the road so close to the A55, and so to prevent it, have suggested the a one-way system on the Ffordd 6g, which will allow access into Conwy, Llandudno Junction and Deganwy and off on to the A55 Junction 18, from all directions, with the only limitation between the Tesco roundabout and the Weekly News roundabout.

In a question posed to residents by Conwy County Borough Councillor Julie Fallon, residents were largely torn due to the severe disruption both plans would likely cause.

One resident said that the works “will be a nightmare whichever way but at least this way everyone gets access at some point of the day”, while another questioned “how much money has been wasted yet again on planning”.

Many respondents questioned the timing of the works was of more concern, with one resident saying: “Why is this work being undertaken in May, affecting businesses and also two bank holidays?

“This work could be carried out in September, just as much risk of rain then as there is now!

“Businesses have suffered enough and I despair at some of this councils decisions!”

Another said: “For me and I suspect a lot of people is the timing of the works.

“I have to ask why when the businesses of the area have suffered so much would the council even dream of closing any part of the road at this time of year.”
