A RUTHIN based company has completed the civil engineering work at the A55 Glan Conwy roundabout near Llandudno Junction.

Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK will now turn its attention to the final phase of the contract: street lighting replacement.

The company delivered the pinch point scheme at junction 19 of the A55 on behalf of the Welsh Government to make the route safer for all users. It provides an improved and safer environment for pedestrians and cyclists and is separate from the main carriageway. The project aims to improve efficient traffic flow using a sophisticated traffic signal system at the Glan Conwy Roundabout where the A470 meets the A55 in Llandudno Junction.

The scheme has been an important stimulus to the local economy, providing local employment and business for local suppliers during a difficult economic time. Replacing the current street lighting with a more eco-friendly LED alternative will lead to an energy saving of up to 52 per cent.

Rhys Roberts, Jones Bros project manager, said: “Our team has worked well throughout, including at night to carry out the most disruptive activity during quieter periods. We have constructed safer crossings for pedestrians and cyclists and installed traffic signals at key locations.
