Road Resurfacing: A547, Abergele Road, Colwyn Bay

Thursday 22nd Oct 2020

Work finishes: 23 October 2020

We are pleased to let you know that the Council has prioritised Abergele Road for road surface improvements.

What is happening?

We are resurfacing part of Abergele Road, from Greenfield Avenue to Nant y Glyn Road.

A convoy vehicle will escort traffic through the work. Our contractors will be working in the evening and at night, between 6pm and 1am, to minimise traffic disruption. Our contractors will make every effort to carry out the noisier work earlier in the night.


Our contractor will comply with social distancing measures. Please keep your distance from the workers.

What is resurfacing?

We resurface a road when the surface layer can no longer be maintained.

Step 1 - remove the existing surface (this is called planing)

Step 2 - clean the surface with a mechanical sweeper

Step 3 - lay a bond coating, to make sure the new surface sticks

Step 4 - lay the new surface

Step 5 - compact and level the new surface with rollers

Step 6 - repaint the road markings

Resurfacing is a noisy and dusty process, and we are sorry for the inconvenience this might cause. The new road surface will provide a smoother, quieter ride and will be a long lasting benefit to the community.


If you need more information, please contact the Environment, Roads & Facilities Advice Team on or call 01492 575337.

We apologise for the inconvenience.

Thank you for your patience while we carry out this work.
