Carriageway patching work is set to begin on Monday, 13th March at Bwlch Pen Barras, Moel Famau. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The works will also include measures to address traffic congestion and damage to the grass verges along the road that leads to Moel Famau car parks. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The works also include the installation of yellow line road markings to prohibit parking on the road. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Denbighshire County Council and Clwydian Range and Dee Valley AONB consulted on measures to alleviate congestion at Moel Famau, and new measures are a result of feedback from residents. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Work is expected to take up to five days, starting from Monday, March 13th. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The road will be closed for vehicles and pedestrians from the entrance of the top car park for a distance of 1.2 miles in an easterly direction. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

All adjoining side roads will also be closed for the duration of the works, including access to the Moel Famau, Moel Fenlli, and Coed Moel Famau Forest Car Parks. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Access to residential and business premises located on Bwlch Pen Barras will still be available, although some delay and disruption may be experienced. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Denbighshire County Council has apologised for any inconvenience caused and encourages locals to keep journeys to a minimum to reduce traffic congestion. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The alternative diversion route will be signed accordingly, and normal working hours shall apply to the works. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Councillor Barry Mellor, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said, “Denbighshire County Council apologises for any inconvenience that these essential works may cause.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“We are grateful for local cooperation and patience during this time to ensure that the works are completed as quickly and efficiently as possible.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
