40mph Average Speed Cameras in A55 Abergwyngregyn to Tai’r Meibion roadworks zone


The work on the Average Speed Camera scheme on the A55, Abergwyngregyn to Tai’r Meibion (eastbound) carriageway, Gwynedd has now been completed and the cameras are fully operational.


As part of the Abergwyngregyn to Tai’r Meibion improvement works, the carriageway will have a reduced lane width, firstly on the eastbound and then on the westbound side. A temporary 40mph speed limit will be in place in both directions during this time.


This is to protect motorists and the workforce who will be working close to live traffic. We kindly ask that drivers protect road workers by slowing down near the works and obeying all speed limits and signs.


The temporary 40mph speed limit will be monitored and enforced by the average speed cameras and any offences recorded will be processed by the GoSafe team in North Wales Police.


The £30m scheme will improve safety and deliver more flood protection on this stretch of the A55. Three kilometres of new and improved active travel facilities will also form an integral part of the completed scheme.


Deputy Minister for Climate Change, and the minister responsible for transport, Lee Waters said:

“We would encourage all road users to play their part in keeping to the temporary speed limit for the duration of the roadworks. This will help to ensure the safety of the travelling public and the workforce.  This work is vital to improve safety and protect against flooding on an original stretch of the A55, and every effort is being made to minimise disruption as much as possible including maintaining four lanes of traffic during the daytime."
