A new path on Snowdonia is to be developed, allowing walkers a safer passage between Pen y Gwryd and Pen y Pass.
The work is being funded by Snowdonia Green Key, an initiative run by the Snowdonia National Park Authority, reports the Daily Post.
Emyr Williams, director of land management at the national park, told the newspaper: "The new footpath development from Pen Y Gwryd to Pen Y Pass will now enable walkers to walk safely between the two points.
"This will avoid the need to walk on the busy and dangerous section of the A4086 which has always been of major concern to the National Park and the highways agencies for a number of years."
Work on the path will begin later this month and will be completed in spring 2011.
