Major road safety works have started on a one-mile stretch of coast road at Flintshire which has been the scene of serious accidents.

Highways officials say the eight-week work on the A548 at Gronant includes a cut in speed limit from 70mph to 50mph.

A signal-controlled bridleway and shared footway and cycleway is also being installed.

Flintshire council says it will try to limit disruptions along a section of road near Bells of St Mary's pub.
