A busy bridge linking Conwy and Denbighshire will be closed for up to three weeks while structural repairs are carried out.

The main deck of the A548 Foryd Harbour Bridge, which connects Rhyl to Kinmel Bay, must be completely replaced because of corrosion damage.

Sea water has worn down concrete reinforcements, and the eastern side requires major work.

The full programme of work is expected to start in July and last for 24 weeks.

A Denbighshire council report said work had been designed to minimise disruption to traffic.

Any road closure, which is likely to last for a maximum of three weeks, would not happen until at least October, it said.
