Jones Bros completes ‘missing link’ cycle route7th Sep 2012

Jones Bros has recently completed work on a £1.1m bridge that provides a safe route for cyclists and walkers on a popular cycle route along the north Wales coast.

The opening of the new section transforms the walking and cycling experience along the north Wales coast between Conwy town and Penmaenmawr, taking cyclists away from the busy A55.

The new link provides an essential bridge over the north Wales railway and a tranquil trail through the Conwy Morfa dunes, completing National Cycle Network Route 5 between Chester and Holyhead.

It links in with the existing coast path adjacent to the A55 around Penmaenbach headland to the west, connecting through to Penmaenmawr and Llanfairfechan. To the east, the route runs through Conwy Marina, into Conwy and on towards Llandudno.

The scheme has been developed by Sustrans, the Welsh Government and Conwy County Borough Council and funded by Taith, the regional transport consortium, the Welsh Government and the Big Lottery Fund.

The route will be officially opened by Carl Sargeant, Minister for Local Government and Communities and Assembly Member for Alyn and Deeside, later this month.
