Corbyn Visits Colwyn Bay

Jeremy Corbyn drew large crowds when he visited Colwyn bay on Wednesday.

General-Election-2017

Many people missed seeing him as the numbers meant parking was extremely difficult, at least some even had to park as far away as Old Colwyn.

But the faithful Corbyn supporters were there in force, as to were the local police. A 20 minute speech, and Jeremy was off on the train again to his next destination.

A clip of the speech can be seen at the Daily Post page. http://www.dailypost.co.uk/news/north-wales-news/live-jeremy-corbyn-rally-colwyn-13150129

Traffic Chaos on A55

Furious motorists found themselves stuck in queues up to 13 miles long on Sunday after roadworks began on the expressway near Colwyn Bay on Saturday.

Drivers were caught in huge tailbacks from Junction 16 Dwygyfylchi to Junction 23 Llanddulas.

The problems were caused by the work on a new crossover between Juntion 23 Llanddulas and Junction 22 Old Colwyn as well as on-going work at the Conwy Tunnel.

The outer lanes are due to be closed in both directions between Junction 22 and Junction 23 until April 5.

Welsh transport minister Ken Skates tweeted “Roadworks on the A55 are banned from Easter until Autumn unless there’s an emergency repair needed”

The work is scheduled to last until April 5.

Long Term Closure of Colwyn Bay Promenade Causes Consternation Among Locals.

The next stage of developments to take place on Colwyn bay promenade could take upto a year which has upset a number of local residents who say it may deter tourists from coming to the Bay.

The Prom has been closed from the Pier to Marine Road Old Colwyn, with no date set for reopening. Diversions are in place but these will only increase traffic on other local routes. It would be advisable to use the A55 when ever possible.

It has also been noted that there were no signs in place to advise tourists of how to reach the accessible parts of the prom, at Old Colwyn and Rhos-on-Sea.

I have been trying , without success, to contact someone involved to get more information about the potential length of the disruption.

Cllr Dave Cowans said to the Daily Post, “We realise closing this section of promenade will cause disruption, but every effort will be made to keep this to a minimum.” I don’t think his “minimum” will actually be that minimal.

Another local resident told me that, in his words “And this is before they start on the Pier!”
