There may soon be reduced demand for traffic barriers in Porthmadog, as the area welcomes a new bypass.

The three-mile section of the A487 is aimed at lowering congestion levels while improving safety and journey times and has been finalised seven weeks ahead of schedule.

Some opposition has been voiced towards the project, with businesses expressing concern that passing trade will be severely reduced in both Porthmadog and Tremadog.

"It will provide opportunities and we need to grasp these to ensure it does not have a detrimental effect," commented Porthmadog Town Council chairman Alwyn Gruffydd.

The town often experiences severe congestion during the summer months, which led to a campaign by locals that lasted several years for a bypass to be built.

Construction of the bypass began in January last year and involved the input of a 250-strong workforce, as well as one of the largest cranes in Europe.
