Flintshire County Council has submitted bids to the Welsh Government for funding to introduce a range of road safety and transport improvements across the County

Ten proposed schemes have been identified following a review and analysis of recorded accident data and safety audits.

They include a review the parking and traffic safety arrangements outside Golftyn Primary School, Connah’s Quay, Ysgol Bryn Coch, Mold and Sandycroft Primary School including the provision of mandatory 20mph speed limits outside each school.

The council is also looking to improve bus collection points along the new proposed Core Bus Network by improving shelters, kerbing, footways, lighting and the provision of clear signage and bus timetables at each of the sites, in order to provide effective links to future local Community Transport arrangements.

Other improvements the council is looking to make:

– Upgrading the existing Zebra crossing to a Pelican crossing near Trelawnyd School

– Upgrading the existing Zebra crossing to a Pelican crossing in Church Road, Buckley

– Highway Safety improvements and route treatment work along the A5104 between Penymynydd and Warren Hall

– Highway Safety improvements and route treatment work on the A5026 Lloc, adjacent to the Rock Inn Public House

– Highway Safety improvements on Liverpool Road, Buckley at its junction with Alltami Road near Elfed High School

– Improved Active travel access arrangements along Shore Road Gronant

– Provision of a footpath link between Bryn Awelon, Mold and Bryn y Baal.

– Funds to set up pilot Community Transport schemes in two areas of the County

Councillor Bernie Attridge, Cabinet Member for Environment said:

”The schemes have been chosen following assessments of all areas of concern on the Council’s Highway Network. The assessments have followed processes previously agreed by the administration to ensure openness and transparency and to ensure that the schemes most in need of attention are put forward. It once again highlights the importance of an effective and safe highway network to this Council and I eagerly await the outcome of the bids to Welsh Government for all of the schemes we have put forward”

The outcome of the bids is expected early in the new financial year.
