Janet Finch-Saunders AM has today written to the Minister for Economy, Science and Transport, calling for her to provide assurances to motorists ahead of the forthcoming lane closures on the A55.
Janet said: “The Minister must provide some firm guarantees to motorists that the chaos caused by the lane closures during the Penmaenbach tunnel works will not be repeated.
“The roadworks before Christmas created a particularly problematic contraflow system, causing unnecessary and excessive traffic hold ups and resulting in gridlock on all main roads leading off in the area. I witnessed first-hand that the Sychnant Pass road became dangerously congested; and the A546 roundabouts at Llandudno Junction were at a standstill at peak times, all of which resulted in lengthy travel delays.
“I have asked the Minister to outline what action has been taken to ensure motorists and public transport users will not face these same problems again.”
