The proposed scheme comprises of:

Landscape, townscape design features and environmental mitigation comprises of:

Visualisation of the proposed Junction 15 improvements, new active travel route and replacement footbridge at Llanfairfechan.

You can find out more about the proposals by reading the Scheme Assessment Report and the Environmental Statement Non-Technical Summary, which can be found in the project Document library, or by exploring the Scheme Layout Plan and Environmental Master Plans (EMP). You can also see what the scheme might look like after construction by watching the fly-through. Due to the limited nature of the proposed improvement works, there is no draft Line/Slip Road Order, EMP or flythrough for Junction 14.
