Hope everyone concerned can exit their properties during their allotted 5 minute slot . >:(

Mrs H. Went to VC last night, with friends, who told of various problems, from roads closed ( parts of Mostyn St ?)  bus routes changed, and various stops out of service, even the drivers did not know what was going on, ........ Monday night seems a bit early for all the changes  ???

WORKS which have been causing major traffic delays on the A55 for nearly four weeks have finished.
Essential improvement works, on the Kneeshaw Lupton underbridge near Junction 23 to Llanddulas, began on September 17 and were due to be completed next week.
But the works have been completed six days early with roads returning to normal today.

And while they have concluded for now, works on the Eastbound carriageway section of the bridge still need to be done but will be carried out next year.

So figures reveal what most of us already know - it's bad driving that causes accidents!

Speed might not be listed but loosing control was one of the biggest reasons for an accident happening. It's a combination of both that tends to cause injuries and fatalities.You can be within the speed limit and still be driving too fast but you can't be prosecuted for speeding, just due care and reckless driving so speed wouldn't be mentioned.

Anyone know why they didn't just carry on and get the A55 roadworks over and done with while the going is good? After all must be cheaper if all the plant and machinery is already on site?

More road closure information...............RHOS ON SEA    CAYLET PROM.
A SECTION of road in Rhos-on-Sea is set to be closed for four months while works are done to tackle flooding in the area.
   
Welsh Water said the section of road along the promenade between the two entrances to Cayley Promenade will be closed from December to March 2019 while they undertake a £960,000 sustainable drainage scheme.

The utility company said whilst most roads will remain open during the planned work, there will be some closures.

They will start as early as next week with Everard Road closed for six weeks.

The scheme being carried out, called RainScape, will aim to reduce the amount of rainwater which flows into local public drainage systems and will therefore reduce the risk of flooding.
The scheme is anticipated to remove around 17 hectares of the surface water runoff currently entering the sewerage network in the area.
There will also be upgrades to three outfalls in front of Cayley Promenade.

Welsh Water said customers and businesses in the area have been kept informed of the planned work and two "well-attended" information events were held at Porth Eirias to discuss proposals with residents and business owners.
Welsh Water’s programme delivery manager, Daniel Purchase, said: “We are committed to delivering a first class wastewater network to our customers and our investment here reflects this.

"We have carefully planned the scheme to ensure we minimise disruption on local communities and will continue to liaise with local businesses and residents to ensure they are aware of our plans.
"Whilst we are working there will be no impact on the wastewater services to local people”   ref Pioneer

We were driving on the A470 to Betws Y Coed today just after midday and between Betws and Llanrwst we saw the results of a bad two car crash.  There were two Police vehicles in attendance but we didn't see an ambulance on the scene.
Bad driving obviously played a part in the crash but speeding certainly had a major part in it too judging by the skid marks across the road that must have been more than 50 yards long.
I hope that no one was seriously injured as a result of the crash

The A470 between Back Cat and Llanrwst is far from suitable for commercial vehicles. Some of the bend radii as you leave Glan Conwy, combined with the narrowness of the road, make it potentially lethal.  And 12 years ago the WA stated improving the road at the dog-leg stretch - mid-way between Bodnant and Maenan - was a priority. So much for progress.

Traffic delays can be expected around Conwy Road in Colwyn Bay for the next two weeks.
 
Work to resurface Conway Road will start tomorrow (November 15) and is expected to take around two weeks to complete, weather permitting.
The resurfacing work will take place along the road, from the junction with Woodland Road West to the junction with Queen’s Drive.
Temporary traffic lights will be in place and Conwy County Borough Council said some delays are expected.
An alternative route along Princes Drive will be signposted.
A CCBC spokesperson said: "We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this essential resurfacing work."
