HERE are a few suggestions to make the A55 safer: 1) Llanfairfechan - Build another bridge at Madryn, make into a big roundabout like Llandegai; 2) Do away with Shore Road East roundabout; 3) Do away with Aber Junctions open Old Road to Madryn and use roundabout; 4) Do away with Tal-y-Llon Junction, use Llandegai roundabout ; 5) Fence off sides of Britannia Road bridge, stop traffic slowing down to look at views; 6) Change traffic control vehicles to breakdown trucks; 7) Penmaenmawr - move A55 road from Penmaenbach Tunnel inland, do away with roundabout, plenty of land for this and less convenience to motorist.
