A470, near Dolgellau, Gwynedd - Coppermine - 1916.jpg
A470, near Dolgellau, Gwynedd

Coming up to the northern end of the A493, we hit this sign... Dual carriageway indeed, but not very long...

A470, near Dolgellau, Gwynedd

The A470 acts as a bypass for Dolgellau, but actually cuts through the small market town along the course of a former railway along the River Whion. On either side of the town there are short sections of dual-carriageway - where the A494 towards Bala starts, on the eastern side of Dolgellau; and where the A493 starts as it clings to the coast around Cadair Idris on the western side. The photo is taken on the western side looking up the A470 towards Trawsfynydd.

From the A493/A470 junction near Dolgellau, is a bi-lingual Give Way sign, in both English and Welsh, along with a warning that you are approaching a (very short section of) dual carriageway.

The gridline cuts across this structure at its mid-point. This view from the south bank of the Wnion shows the low level of the river after a prolonged dry spell in the early autumn of 2009.
