The exhibitions will give members of the public an opportunity to meet the project team, see the plans being considered, the timescales involved and the process of the improvement scheme.

A range of options are under consideration to remove the existing roundabout arrangements and provide grade separated junctions at 15 and 16 which will help make journeys safer and faster.

Contractors Carillion, with its consultants Ramboll, Gwynedd Consultancy and Richards Moorehead and Laing are carrying out the next stage of the project and will be hosting the event.

The exhibitions will be held on 13 December at Penmaenmawr Museum, 14 December at The Church Institute, Llanfairfechan and 15 December at St Gwynin’s Parish Hall, Dwygyfylchi. All between 10am-8pm.

The events are free and everyone is welcome to attend.

Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Transport, Ken Skates said:

“The A55 is a vital route and this significant project will deliver a number of benefits including better traffic flows and journey times as well as improving our ability to deal with emergencies.

“The Public Information Exhibitions are a good opportunity for people to learn more about the proposals being considered and have their say.

“This scheme is a prime example of the Welsh Government’s commitment to investing in the A55.”
