Flintshire will receive more than half a million pounds from the Welsh Government to help improve road safety.

Transport Minister Edwina Hart has announced nearly £29m funding for transport schemes across Wales to boost safety, create economic growth and promote active travel.
The grants have been awarded through four different funds.

Flintshire County Council has made successful bids to each fund, receiving a total of £550,562.

The authority will receive £144,750 from the Local Transport Fund for the first stage of a project to improve access from rural communities to strategic bus routes in the county.

Road Safety Capital grants have been awarded as follows: £60,000 for road safety improvements on A5104 Penmynydd to Warren Hall, £54,000 for safety improvements to Lloc Juntion and £122,800 for traffic signals and improved footpath links on Liverpool Road, Alltami.

An award of £106,512 has been made under the Road Safety Education and Training fund and £62,500 for a puffin crossing and upgrade of a red light driver warning system at London Road, Trelawnyd.

Councillor Bernie Attridge, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for the Environment welcomed the good news and said;

“The successful bids follow a robust and transparent process of scheme identification, which ensures that the most important schemes in the County are chosen to be put forward for funding. Each of the schemes will contribute to improving the safety and accessibility of the Flintshire highway network, which remains one the highest priorities for this administration.”

All of the schemes will be completed by March 31st 2017.
