Llandudno promenade cycling ban is lifted

Help

For the first time in more than 130 years, cyclists will be able to use the promenade in Llandudno.

Conwy council has voted to lift the ban on bikes that has been in place since the promenade was built in 1876.

Cyclists have welcomed the decision, but some local residents and visitors say they are concerned about the safety of pedestrians.

The council says warning signs and CCTV will be installed for the 12-month trial.
