A ROAD near a popular Gwynedd beach and camping area has been closed due to flooding.
The narrow lane between Black Rock Sands and Black Rock Caravan Park at Morfa Bychan had been shut Cyngor Gwynedd reported on Friday.
The closure “for the foreseeable future” follows heavy downpours across the region.
Cyngor Gwynedd Morfa Bychan Councillor Gwilym Jones said the rising water had affected the area around Treflys Road where nearby land was sodden following the recent rain.
“The flooding has affected a stretch of road just after you pass the turning to the beach at Black Rocks.” He said.
“To the right of that bit of road it is quite flooded due to the heavy rain we have been having.
“I saw the level of water on the road the same as fields, so the water had no where to go.
“It was still flooded yesterday, although I haven’t seen it today, it may go down, although I think there is more rain on the cards.
“To be safe, the council has closed the road.”
On its Facebook page, Cyngor Gwynedd posted on Friday:
“A Notice of Closure” stating:
“The road between Black Rock Sands and Black Rock Caravan Park is currently closed due to flooding.
“The road will be closed for the foreseeable future.”
