Footpath

Footpath recently asphalted in 2021.

Footpath there is a gate and there is just about enough space to get a bike through. It would be awkward with a big bike or trailer though.

Stupid stepped ramp bridge - a masterpiece of inaccessibility. This design makes it difficult for any wheeled users. There are steep steps at the other end too.

Useful map explaining walking and cycling routes.

Completely faded signs for a footpath, but the fact that these signs exist is probably enough to guide the wise walker.

Signal controlled pedestrian crossing, albeit temporary.

Are these warning signs really consistent with a 40mph limit as can be seen in the distance. I suppose a highway engineer would say “…it’s designed as a 40mph road…” and stare through you defocussed.

One way cycle route over Thomas Telford’s suspension bridge into Conwy. Return via other bridge. Temporary measures during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Plaza in front of Llandudno station - no cycle stands, no benches, no recycling bins - just wasted space.
