WALES: Fury over by-pass start date in 2010.

FURIOUS councillors are demanding work starts soon on a by-pass around a North Wales town plagued by holiday traffic jams.

It could be nine years before the 5km by-pass around Porthmadog finally opens, says the Welsh Assembly.

But locals, fed up with cars crawling along the High Street, want the 2010 start date rolled forward.

"This is an issue under debate locally for quite some time - with one public consultation exercise having taken place as far back as 1993 - and we have as a council been pressing Assembly engineers to get on with the building of the proposed by-pass." said town council chairman Selwyn Griffiths.

Local residents can see an exhibition of plans at the Glaslyn Leisure Centre today and tomorrow.

The proposed by-pass, across the Traeth Mawr, will start near the western end of Tremadog and run eastwards to a point adjacent to Bron y Garth Hospital in Minffordd.

Officials from the Welsh Assembly Government and its consultants, Halcrow and White Young Green Planning, will explain the proposals and respond to questions.
