Driving in Wales: Why the north-south road is so slow – BBC News

Driving in Wales: Why the north-south road is so slow – When we are watching Wales play – whether it’s rugby or football – it is one nation united, supporting its teams.

But what about the real world physical connections that bind us – especially between the north and south?

For a small country, our sprawling, twisting road network makes it a very large place. 

It can take longer to drive from Llandudno to Cardiff than it does to take your car across the Irish sea to Dublin.

Get stuck behind a timber lorry on the A470 – and you’ll find it would have been quicker to drive to London instead.

But why? It’s 190 miles – why should that journey take so long?

Shocking hike in jobless young people in parts of North Wales

There has been a 43% increase in youth unemployment in one county over a year

After years of falling unemployment in Wales the most recent figures have shown a concerning reverse in that trend – with an increase in the number of people without a job over the past 12 months.

This is particularly stark in the 18-24 category with a warning from an AM that it should set “alarm bells ringing”.

Be ready for No- Deal businesses urged | North Wales Chronicle

Business are asked to take “reasonable steps” in advance of Thursday, October 31.

Companies who trade with the European Union (EU) should ensure they have paperwork sorted before the end of October.

In the event of a No-Deal, companies who import or export goods will need to have an Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI) number to continue trading with the EU.

Gwynedd Council Cabinet Member for Economic Development, Councillor Gareth Thomas said: “As a Council, we have been very clear that we believe that Brexit will have a major impact on our communities. However, with time moving on and the UK due to leave the European Union on 31 October as things stand, it is sensible for businesses to be as prepared as possible.
