I'm sure Steve will unearth the grisly details soon.

The local news is the same as the BBC is reporting, apart from "The local schools were put on lock-down while police dealt with the incident."   

"Grisly" details tomorrow if any.

Lots of delays during rush hour this morning, even though plenty of warning ?  looking at the web cams, not to bad at the moment, but slow out of CB. J22

MOTORISTS have experienced "gridlock" due to lane closures on the A55 this morning.
A contraflow system has been in operation since late yesterday evening - Sunday, September 8 - due to essential repair work to the A55 Kneeshaw Lupton Underbridge Eastbound carriageway.

The repairs, which require single lane closures between Junction 23 at Llandullas and the Rainbow Bridge on both sides, will be underway 24 hours a day for up to five weeks.

A motorist speaking to The Journal said: "I hit the traffic before Abergele roundabout heading West, it was very slow moving once I got to the single lane and it took me more than an hour to pass through.
"It was very slow and frustrating travelling west, but the other side is even worse."  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Mrs H was driving up King's Drive a short while ago and there was a crash between two cars.   Police were on the scene but although there was extensive damage to one car there were no ambulances in attendance  so hopefully no one was seriously injured as a result of the crash

The A55 ought to have been six lanes, not four, when it was first created.  Just another example (if one were needed) of the Southerly bias of the UK government and a total lack of forward thinking (or, indeed, thinking) on the part of planners. No better is the A470. 

It's hard to believe this is the main road linking North and South Wales. Whereas the Southern end has motorway-standard exits and entrances, our end has narrow sections so tight that large lorries have to hold back and a ludicrous dog-leg at the Erw Glas campsite that's been designated for urgent improvement since 2008!

We simply can't win; it's either the pro-South bias at Westminster and the WA, or the sheer incompetence and empire-building of CCBC.

Further on the crash............

"Witnesses said the 4x4 was stationary on the road when the car crashed into it, but this has not been confirmed.
One person was taken to hospital following a two-vehicle crash in Llandudno
Images from the scene showed the 4x4 having crashed onto its side, while a second vehicle had damage to its front."

The mention of " hitting a stationary vehicle a 4X4", reminded me, that spot is used regularly  by horse owners who use the adjacent field.

Virtually the story  as we know from the 6th Sep. , apart from .... "A man who was arrested after a bloody altercation on the A470 in Conwy has since been detained under the mental health act."    ref DP

On Wednesday, I was travelling from Colwyn Bay to Prestatyn and drove along the old road as far as Llanddulas.   There was hardly any traffic on that road at 9.30 am but I could see the traffic on the eastbound lane of the A55 barely moving.
I then joined the A55 at Llanddulas and headed off to Prestatyn but both the westbound lanes of the A55  were stopped nose to tail all the way back to Pensarn
Coming home at about 4.00 pm I kept to the old road even though the westbound lane seemed to have the traffic flowing freely

The notorious Black Cat Roundabout just off the A55 could see traffic lights and lane markings introduced to cut the number of accidents if proposals get the go-ahead.

The work could start next spring at the Glan Conwy interchange off Junction 19 of the expressway.
Plans under consideration include introducing traffic signal controls as well as "spiral" lane markings to guide drivers around the roundabout and to the exits.

There will also be provision for routes to cycle or walk across the interchange from the Glan Conwy direction to join with existing link at Narrow Lane in Llandudno Junction.
