Fears Arriva Buses would pull their number 10 service from Bryn Road and Engelfield Avenue in Connah’s Quay have eased following a meeting today, Thursday October 13.

We’ve learned from those involved that Arriva had threatened to pull the number 10 service from 12pm on Thursday following bus driver concerns over the ongoing roadworks.

Welsh Water are spending £1.8m on upgrading the water mains in the Englefield Avenue area of Connah’s Quay where over 4 km of pipeline is being replaced.

Work will continue until around March 2017.

An Arriva spokesman said:

“We are aware of difficulties negotiating roadworks on Englefield Avenue, Connah’s Quay by our Chester service 10. A meeting of officials concerned will be taking place at midday today (Thursday) to hopefully resolve the issue.”

Arriva officials and a Flintshire County Council officer met this afternoon who agreed to move temporary traffic lights allowing buses to get through easier.

The Arriva spokesman later confirmed the situation had been resolved, lifting the threat of withdrawing the Number 10 service from that part of Connah’s Quay.
