A55 (J21) Victoria Avenue Traffic Signal Refurbishment

Share

Where and Why?

The existing junction traffic signals and associated pedestrian crossings located on the A55 trunk road at junction 21 – Victoria Avenue has reached end of its design life and is no longer economical to maintain; therefore, the proposals are to upgrade the site to improve the availability of this safety critical asset. 

The works are programmed to be completed between Monday 27th April 2020 and Thursday 18th June 2020.

Diversions and Safety Measures

The works will be carried out using temporary traffic signals in addition to temporary pedestrian crossings being installed to facilitate the safe crossing of members of the public across the slip roads and Victoria Avenue county road (B5113).

A series of full closures of the slip roads will be required to facilitate the works and these are programmed as detailed in the below table. Additionally, lane closures will also be required on the county road – Victoria Avenue (B5113).

The diversion route for eastbound traffic when the J21 Victoria Avenue offslip is closed is to continue to J22 Old Colwyn, re-enter the trunk road on the westbound carriageway and exit at J21 – Colwyn Bay.

The diversion route for westbound traffic when the J21 Victoria Avenue offslip is closed is to continue to J20 Princess Drive and follow the local diversion to Brompton Ave. Traffic should then re-enter the A55 using the J20 eastbound onslip and exit at J21 – Colwyn Bay.

There is no foreseen effect on abnormal loads.
