Section II: Object
A55 Abergwyngregyn to Tai'r Meibion
The A55 is the main North Wales coastal route and is part of Euroroute E22 Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T). It is also an important link, via county roads, for local towns and communities and provides a connection with the North — South A470 to south and central Wales.
This section of the A55 was upgraded to a dual carriageway in the late 1960’s and accordingly, does not comply with current highway standards and is prone to flooding.
We are proposing to improve the 2,2 km length of the A55 between the Tai’r Meibion property and the Abergwyngregyn interchange.
Abergwyngregyn to Tai'r Meibion.
