The family of a man who died in a road accident on the A55 last Friday have paid tribute to their "open and warm hearted" son.

Duncan Monteith, 27 years old, was born in St Asaph and lived with his family in Glan Conwy. He died at the Countess of Chester Hospital on Friday.

His family said: “We are all devastated by Duncan’s death.

"He was gregarious and emotional and wore his heart on his sleeve. He was so open and warm hearted and got close to people very quickly – that is why he had so many close friends whose messages of support have been so supportive at this difficult time”

The Welsh Government's announced a programme to upgrade the A55.

In January a public address system will be installed in the Penmaenbach Tunnel. One lane will be closed for up to 7 days with a full Westbound closure at night.

During February and March another system will be installed in the Conwy Tunnels along with fire protection measures. A contraflow will operate during the work.

Speed cameras will be used in both tunnels.

The dates for the work can be found here closer to the time.
