Some roads in Connah’s Quay could become safer if Flintshire County Council is successful with a number of funding bids.
Road safety schemes have been earmarked for Ffordd Llanarth – Golftyn Lane, Mold Road and High Street in Connah’s Quay, also on the list is The Highway in Hawarden and the A541 in Pontblyddyn.
The council has submitted six funding bids under the Welsh Government’s ‘Safe Routes in the Community’ and ‘Road Safety Grant’ initiatives.
Other sites identified for improvement include Broughton near Broughton Hall Primary School, road safety schemes near Mountain Lane Primary School in Buckley and near Mold Alun Campus & Ysgol Maes Garmon.
The bids were submitted on 2 February and the Council expects to hear if the bids have been successful by the end of March 2018.
Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Streetscene and Transportation, Councillor Carolyn Thomas, said:
“The Council is continually investigating ways to improve both the safety and connectivity of the highway network and these latest bids to Welsh Government for grant funding will go a long way in achieving this goal.
Although preliminary designs have been completed for each of the schemes, Flintshire County Council will be working closely with local residents, elected members and town and community councils to ensure proposals are tailored to the needs of the community.
I am hopeful that Welsh Government will grant funding for these much needed schemes which will provide a lasting benefit for all road users and local residents at the sites.”
