We are improving the layout of these junctions to make journeys safer and faster.
Why we are doing it
We aim to improve safety and journey times along the A55.
These changes will:
- make maintenance easier
- improve our ability to deal with emergencies
A55 junction 15 flythough:
A55 junction 16 flythrough:
A single option strategy has been agreed for each junction.
We have published a protected route plan.
We have appointed a consultant to progress this next phase of the project. This will lead on to a further stage where we will commission a contractor to build the scheme via a design and build contract.
We will replace the roundabouts at Junction 15 and 16 with height separated junctions. Traffic will join the trunk road via a slip road instead of a roundabout. This will allow traffic on the A55 to flow more smoothly without having to slow down at a roundabout.
Option and design development: autumn 2017 to winter 2019/20
Statutory process and public enquiry: winter 2019/20 to winter 2020/21
Detailed design and construction: 2021 to 2022
How we are consulting
We held stakeholder workshops in July 2008 and a public information event in December 2017. Since the appointment of our consultant we held a 12 week consultation exercise between June and August 2018.
Our consultant will develop the single option solution by consulting with our stakeholders. Site investigations will take place to determine environmental and geotechnical constraints.
