- Work begins on ‘death trap’ cycle route

Cyclists in Wales are to be given a boost by significant improvements that are being made to a popular bike route.
A section that runs alongside the A55 between Conwy Morfa and Penmaenbach headland in Conwy county is being given a makeover as part of a £1.1 million programme, reports the BBC.
The route has previously been described as a "disgrace" and a "death trap", perhaps marking it out as a facility that required desperate upgrades.
With work on the path now underway, people in the country could find they are less likely to make a cycle insurance claim as a result of the improved pathway at their disposal.
Richard Brunstrom, the former chief constable of north Wales, said in 2006: "It is a death trap … you have to cycle on a very narrow pavement right next to the main road with no protection at all."
Earlier this month, WalesOnline told how the Treforest Community Route was launched as part of Bike Week. It will give cyclists in Wales a beautiful backdrop for their biking adventures.
