The level crossing at Tal-y-cafn

The B5279 is a short link road in North Wales.

The road leaves the A470 at the Tal-y-cafn Inn in the village of the same name and heads west, soon crossing the Conwy Valley Line at a level crossing by the village station. After about the same distance again the River Conwy is crossed on a long bridge. The B5279 then bears left to climb out of the valley and then narrows to S1.

The road continues west and enters Ty'n-y-Groes where the speed limit drops to 30 mph just before the end of the road at a T-junction on the B5106.

History

The B5279 was inaugurated in 1935 to take over a formerly unclassified road and so provide a classified crossing of the River Conwy between Conwy and Llanrwst. In the 1950s the eastern end, across the river and railway line, became part of the new A5110 but that road ceased to exist in the 1960s, returning the B5279 to its original length.
