We drove to Holywell early this afternoon and there was a long tailback after the Caerwys turn off but thankfully there was no accident on the road but the delay was due to a motor home breaking down.
The A55 was done on the cheap and like a lot of sections of the road there was no hard shoulder for the vehicle to pull into so anything like this was always going to create a tailback
Coming home down Rhuallt hill the cars were flying past us so the average speed cameras are bound to pick up the offending vehicles

We drove to Anglesey yesterday and there was a long queue of traffic waiting to go over the Britannia Bridge, the weather was outstanding so it was not unexpected to see the queue so long.
Coming home on the A55  from Valley there was a long section of the eastbound carriageway closed and the traffic was diverted to one lane on the westbound side.
The Welsh Office did say that no repair work would be carried out on the A55 during daylight hours and they had kept their word as there was no worker to be seen on the closed section of the A55

From August 1st there will be two weeks of temporary changes in and around Llanrwst.

* Llanrwst will become one way only; vehicles going from Llandudno end will have to turn left after the Meadowsweet hotel and follow the back roads until they emerge after the town.
* Most roads in Llanrwst will become no parking zones for the same period.
* The bridge across the river will become one-way, leading away from the town.
* Crossing the river from Trefriw to reach Llanrwst will involve a 17 mile detour via Betws or North via Tal y Cafn.

Should be lots of fun...

Today I planned to take Mrs H to Llangollen to see the Horseshoe falls and the Aqueduct, so we set off on the A55 to St Asaph and then to drive up the Vale of Clwyd and down the Horseshoe Pass.   
We had just gone past the Threeway's Roundabout in Abergele when the traffic came to an abrupt halt and there was no movement in either eastbound lanes and there are no slip roads then until you reach Bodelwyddan.  So we were stuck there for about half an hour and then the traffic started moving.
The problem was just past the Petrol Station where the Police and Fire Service were attending to the burnt out wreckage of a car.   I hope that no one was hurt by that incident but that was enough for us so we turned back and headed for home and ended up having a nice lunch in Marmalade's Cafe in Rhos on Sea.
We have decided not to visit Llangollen until September when the roads will be a lot quieter

I was driving to Llandudno on Saturday evening at about 6.45 pm and outside Hickory's in Rhos On Sea there had been a car crash. It would appear that a car was coming out of Church Road and was hit by another car with L plates that was travelling towards Llandudno
It didn't appear that anyone was hurt as a result of the accident thankfully and when we drove past a short while later the Police car was on the scene taking statements,

Yes. Our daughter had a 10.30am appointment in Ysbyty Gwynedd and I saw the news coming through at 8.50am.

Mrs R was driving so they went down the A470 and up the A5.

She messaged me at 10.25am to say they were there.  &well&

I hope the child and other two passenger all make a fully recovery.

It is at times like this that it would be useful to run a water taxi from Llandudno Pier to Bangor Pier.
