Llandudno road to have speed limit reduced following crash

Finnley Jones, 20, died late last October after he had sustained serious injuries following an incident involving a vehicle travelling southbound on the road towards the black cat roundabout.

The campaign to improve road safety has been led by Janet Finch-Saunders, Aberconwy MS, who met on site with members of North Wales Police and Conwy County Borough Council.

At the site meeting, it was agreed that:

  • Conway Road will reduce from a 40mph to 30mph speed limit in September.
  • North Wales Police will conduct further surveys once the new speed limit is in place.
  • Conwy County Borough Council will investigate adjustment to the radar speed camera currently in operation, so that it displays either a capped speed or a safety message once the speed limit is exceeded, rather than the drivers’ actual speed.
  • The council is also working in partnership with Transport for Wales towards active travel improvements which will impact Conway Road.

Mrs Finch-Saunders said: “It is great to hear that much-needed highway safety improvements are being made.

“Whilst I still believe that a speed camera is essential, I am confident that the list of actions I have secured so far is still going to have a positive impact.

“Residents can be reassured that I will continue to act on this case until such a time that the highway is better for all users.”
