A vulnerable waterfront road will be closed for up to 12 months to install the next phase of sea defences worth more than £6m.

Approximately half a mile of rock armour will be built in front of Old Colwyn’s promenade after Welsh Government stumped up the cash to pay for it.

It means the stretch just east of Porth Eirias up to Splash Point will be closed for a year while works are completed.

The £6.075m scheme, which continues on from the previous phase of the project, will help protect the area from flooding and wave over-topping for another 100 years.

The A55 Conwy tunnel will close on Saturday (March 6) for a duration of 12 days.

The tunnel, which is located between junctions 17 and 18, will close at 7pm on that day and will reopen at 7am on Thursday, March 18.

More problems with the A55
A55 motorists face 35 mile detour misery due to roadworks
Eastbound drivers from Gwynedd and Anglesey will be diverted to the A5 and the A470 and the Conwy tunnel will be shut for a time affecting westbound traffic

This won't help the traffic from Anglesey either

I had the opportunity to travel to the new A55/Black Cat roundabout today and all I can say is it's confusing...and I know where I want to go. So many road markings you can't read them and watch the traffic at the same time. I can see a stranger having huge difficulty especially when a local starts taking an aggressive driving position to dominate the road.

Re: Roads in the area....New Snowdonia car parking
« Reply #1282 on: April 02, 2021, 10:12:48 AM »
Visitors to a Snowdonia car park will now permanently have to pre-book parking slots at certain times under new rules brought in by the national park.

The Pen-y-Pass car park - which lies at the foot of Snowdon - can accommodate around 80 vehicles and lies at the start of two popular routes to the summit of Wales’ highest peak.
A new pilot scheme for weekends and bank holidays began last August - meaning access to the car park was reserved for pre-bookings only.

Until recently it would cost walkers £10 to park all day.
But the Snowdonia National Park Authority (SNPA) has now scrapped the £10 fee and has introduced a permanent online pre-booking service along with a range of parking tariffs.

They will start from £18 to park at the site for between one and eight hours, going up to £25 for 12 hours.
Those who chose to park for 24 hours will now have to pay £40.

It is understood that these new parking tariffs will be in place for the duration of the 'peak' season - or until November.

Further on above story

Cones laid along A5 in Snowdonia to stop parking chaos from Easter visitors
Illegal parking along the A5 at Llyn Ogwen has in the past caused major problems

Mrs and I went for a drive this afternoon - A55 to Llandygai, then A5 to Betws-y-Coed, then back down the valley.

Was amazed at how many cars were parked at Llyn Ogwen, there was very little space left, other than where the long line of cones were - must have been about a mile of cones on both sides - we didn't count them!  I did spot a couple in the lake as well.

The straight stretch of road on the Betws side of the coned section also had cars parked all the way down one side.

A55 and A494 traffic updates LIVE: Queues form as cross-border travel restrictions end
Delays are forming on stretches of the A494 in Flintshire and the A55

It is one of the first times in months that motorists are experiencing delays caused by the volume of traffic on the roads into North Wales.

Left at 2pm and drove to Liverpool. The only hold-up was along the Strand in Liverpool.  A55 might be busier when we return later as people cannot stay overnight!

Just got back, clear run apart from the occasional red traffic light - thought it might have been busy due to people returning but perhaps they were staying in England in a little bit longer!.

First ride out since last October. Thought Betws might be busy but as you can see it was very quiet.
