The entire scheme runs 1.2km from Porth Eirias in the west to Splash Point (by Old Colwyn Arches) in the east and we estimate it will cost approximately £35M in total.

We have not yet found the source for all of this funding, but we have already secured some funding:

  • Welsh Government Active Travel Fund - £1.6m to safeguard the active travel route and to provide other active travel improvements in this area, completed in 2020.
  • Welsh Government Resilient Roads Fund - £6.075M to protect a significant length of the most at-risk section with a rock barricade, planned for 2021
