KINMEL Bay motorists are set to face another six weeks of disruption.

Roadworks returned to the town on Monday, January 6 and are a continuation of a £6.9 million investment by Welsh Water on the drinking water network in the Bodelwyddan and Kinmel Bay.

The works on water pipes will take place from Park Avenue and along St Asaph Avenue, finishing at the traffic lights over the railway bridge.

A Welsh Water spokesperson said: “Our team are currently working on St Asaph Avenue between Tir Llwyd and Asda and should be finished on this section by the end of February. We will then be working on St Asaph Avenue from Tir Llwyd to Bodelwyddan from March until the end of May.

"We will also be carrying out work on other small sections of roads in the Kinmel Bay and Bodelwyddan area over the next few months.

“While work is being carried out on St Asaph Avenue, to keep our team and the public safe, traffic lights will be in place. During this time, vehicles wider than three metres will not be able to cross the bridge and will need to use a local diversion from today for six weeks. At this time, the junction between Cader Avenue and St Asaph Avenue will also be closed to traffic with a diversion through Chester Avenue. As a result we would kindly ask that vehicles are not parked on Chester Avenue between the junctions of St Asaph Avenue and Dulas Avenue so that we can keep the traffic flowing."

The team from Welsh Water will take questions at Kinmel Bay Church, St Asaph Avenue, on Tuesday, January 21 between noon and 2pm.
