Work starts: 26 July 2021
Work finishes: 6 August 2021

Traffic will be managed from Pont y Pair in Betws y Coed to Gwydir Castle, Llanrwst. We hope that most of the work can be carried out using a convoy system to escort traffic through the work. But we may need to temporarily close the road when we are working on the more narrow sections. If this is the case, please follow the signed diversion.

What is road surface dressing?
First we spray bitumen binder (a sticky tar-like substance) on a road surface, then spread stone chippings on top. After this the surface is rolled to push the stones in, but some loose stones will stay on the top. Vehicles driving over the new road surface will push these in to finish the surface. We the add a binder coat to seal the surface, before repainting the road markings.

We will then give the road a final sweep after a few weeks to clear up any loose stones.

Our contractor will comply with current Covid-19 guidelines. Please respect the 2m social distancing rule and do not approach the workforce.
