As I went through just after 7.30 this morning there was one lane open westbound.  The workers were replacing the central barrier that was removed to allow traffic to cross into the contraflow.  It looks like once that's done there's little else to do other than pick the cones up.

It could be open today, or at least by tomorrow to allow the (hopefully) hoards of visitors a clear run.

Just had a look at the traffic camera. It seems they didn't manage to pick the cones up today!

I am not too sure, Hugo, but I do believe there is some more work in the pipeline stretching from Bangor over towards Chester.

BTW, I have an old photograph of Glanwydden Football Team from the end of WW2.

Would you like me to put it up under another TOPIC?

There are a few names of a few older lads you may recognise (including me and wrex’s late uncle).

Came back home (Westwards) on the A55 this evening and despite the volume of traffic being really high it was straight through without delay.Just under an hour from Wrexham compared with 2 hours 45 last Friday at around the same time. Traffic Eastbound was again clogged from Colwyn Bay to Abergele so lets hope that goes tomorrow.

Yes, they were still there when I  travelled east at noon and they were still on the east side when I returned around 5pm.

In fact, the queue then was way back to Llanddulas.

I've been travelling from Ruthin to Caernarfon for the past few weeks to attend a course.  Due to the lovely weather I have been taking the scenic route via Cerrigydrudion, Betws y Coed and the Llanberis pass. It takes me about an hour and 20 minutes going at my usual leisurely pace, people have told me it would be quicker to take the A55 even though the mileage is higher.


Yesterday I decided to do the return trip via the A55 so I could stop off at St Asaph. What a mistake, the A55 was horrendous with three lots of coned off lanes between Bangor and Bodelwyddan. The only work I saw going on was a man using a blower to remove debris from under the central reservation.
Having said that the coastline looked positively Mediterraenean, so tempted to turn off at Pen and go for a swim. Back to the scenic route next week! Much better for a sense of well-being if nothing else $walesflag$

A course Suepp?

The only course I want to attend is Mike's Golf Course!

chance would be a fine thing, especially on a Monday morning for the forseeable (hopefully before the weather changes)  The drive through Snowdonia is the icing on the cake, it's been spectacular!
