Start Date: March 7th | End Date: Spring 2022
This project will improve the road's drainage system and safety on this section of the network.
For more information regarding the improvements works, please see Welsh Government links on the right, for information on traffic management see details below.
This section of the A55 was upgraded to a dual carriageway in the late 1960s and does not comply with current highway standards. The section is prone to flooding. These works will improve safety and reduce the risk of flooding.
Narrow lane deployment to facilitate the improvement works between Abergwyngregyn and Tai'r Meibion will be undertaken in both directions.
This requires a full overnight closure to remove the existing lane lines and studs and installing new temporary markings. A full closure provides the sufficient working area to carry out the planned works and to do so safely without putting both the work force and road user at risk. Unfortunately, there are no crossovers within this location of works to complete the project with a contraflow system.
The works are being carried out overnight to minimise disruption.
- A55 J12-13 eastbound 40 mph speed restriction in place for the duration of the narrow lanes.
- 7/10/21-09/10/21- Overnight closure between J15 to J11 westbound for 2 nights between 22:00 - 06:00 (23:00 - 05:00 on Friday night) to install blocks and narrow lanes.
09/10/21-10/10/21 - Lane closure travelling Westbound
J13 to J14 22:00pm-06:00am.
- 11/10/21 - 12/10/21- Overnight closure between J11 to J15 eastbound for 1 night from between 22:00 - 06:00 for removal of VRS blocks to facilitate the improvement works.
- 31/10/21- Overnight closure between J11 to J15 eastbound for 1 night between 23:00 - 06:00 to switch eastbound traffic onto the county road network and change road markings.
- A55 J13-12 westbound 40 mph speed restriction in place due to narrow lanes when eastbound works are ongoing.
There will be 40mph average speed control cameras when narrow lanes are in place in both directions. This is to protect motorists and the workforce who will be working closely to live traffic. We kindly ask drivers to respect our road workers, to slow down near works and obey speed limits and signs.
The cameras are operational and will be monitored closely by Go Safe.
