The Flintshire Bridge is nicknamed by the locals as “The Bridge to Nowhere”.
I cross the bridge regularly which means I can understand why the locals chose that nickname. It’s usually a quiet road. The dual carriageway bridge does seem to be a little bit of over-kill for the amount of traffic which uses it.
That is all set to change. To reduce congestion on the A55 Expressway a new section of road will be built from the Flint side of the bridge. It will meet with the A55 near Northrop. Through traffic will then have a more direct connection to the M56 motorway, bypassing the heavily congested section around Queensferry.
