Meeting to Tackle Village Road Concerns

Delyn MP David Hanson and Sandy Mewies AM have convened a meeting between members of the Gwernymynydd Community Council, Flintshire and Denbighshire County Council and the North Wales Trunk Road Agency (NWTRA) to talk about their safety concerns relating to the A494 and parking issues around the village.

David Hanson said:

“Having met with members of Gwernymynydd Community Council back in January I was keen to convene a meeting between the NWTRA and both Flintshire and Denbighshire County Councils.

“There are ongoing concerns about road safety on the A494 and the overflow of parking in the village from people looking to visit Loggerheads close by.

“I hope that by getting all the agencies together under one roof we can tackle these issues head on and find an appropriate solution.”

Elwyn Owens who chairs the Council said:

“We contacted both our MP and our Assembly Member last November out of frustration. We have established a dialogue with Flintshire County Council about the minor roads around the village but when we get in touch with NWTRA we hit a brick wall.

“We are concerned about speeding and the way in which indiscriminate parking in the Cadole area puts pedestrians at serious risk.”

Sandy Mewies AM added:

“I am pleased that representatives from the various agencies have agreed to attend the meeting. I hope there will be some positive outcomes to the various concerns that have been raised.”
