A footpath over the A55 nicknamed Rainbow Bridge was lit up in appropriate colours to celebrate the work of the NHS this week. The structure was bathed in coloured lights by contractors SPIE at the request of the North and Mid Wales Trunk Road Agency (NMWTRA). “Diolch” was projected onto rocks at the side of the carriageway for Tuesday’s one-off tribute. Despite usually being one of the network’s busiest spots, the 70% reduction in normal traffic flow meant key workers could be recognised safely and with minimal disruption to road users.
