The consultation which begins on Monday 4 June and runs until Friday 24 August looks at possible options to remove the two roundabouts at junctions 15 and 16, and replace them with separated junctions.

There are nine options begin considered, five for Junction 15 and four for junction 16.

The new junctions will result in safer travel for road users along the A55, and for people using the route to travel to and from Dwygyfylchi, Llanfairfechan and Penmaenmawr. It will also improve journey times and the road’s resilience.

Active Travel is integral to the A55 junctions 15 and 16 improvement scheme and the options proposed seek to improve current active travel routes which will increase opportunities for walking or cycling.

Public Consultation Exhibitions are being held for people to see the options being considered in detail and the timescales involved. These will take place at St Gwynin's Parish Hall, Dwygyfylchi on 12 June, Penmaenmawr Community Centre on 13 June and Llanfairfechan Community Centre on 14 June. All take place between 10am and 8pm. The exhibitions are free to attend and everyone is welcome.

Economy and Transport Secretary Ken Skates said:

“The A55 Junction 15-16 improvement scheme is a significant development in North Wales and a prime example of the action we are taking to invest in and improve our transport infrastructure.

“The A55 is a key strategic route linking Wales with Ireland, England and the rest of Europe and this scheme will deliver many benefits including better traffic flows and journey time reliability as well as improving safety.

“People’s views on the options being considered will form a vital part of the decision process and I encourage everyone with an interest to contribute to this consultation.”

The A55 junctions 15 and 16 improvement scheme is supported by £26m of EU funds.
