Active travel consultation

People in Wrexham are being asked for their views on plans to improve walking and cycling routes along four key roads.

Wrexham Council and Transport for Wales are working together to make it easier, safer and more convenient to walk and cycle in the city, and want your feedback on plans to improve:

  • The A525 along Kingsmills Road, Salop Road and St Giles Way.
  • The A534 along Holt Road and Borras Road.
  • The A5152 along Chester Road.
  • The A541 along Mold Road and Regent Street.

To have your say, take part in our online consultation where you can view drawings and images of the proposed improvements.

Climate emergency

Deputy Leader Councillor David Bithell, who leads on strategic transport and active travel, says: “By providing better footpaths, cycle tracks and crossings, and developing a network of routes across Wrexham, we can make walking and cycling safer and more convenient.

“We want to encourage more people to leave the car at home for short local journeys, and with the world facing a climate and ecological emergency, this is more important than ever.

“So please fill in our online questionnaire or come along to our drop-in session at Tŷ Pawb on November 9.”

Connecting communities

Councillor Hugh Jones, lead member with responsibility for highways, says: “The routes we’re looking at provide important connections between communities, schools, shops, workplaces and the city centre.

“We’ve looked at how each route could be potentially redesigned to create direct, safe, comfortable and attractive routes for pedestrians, including people using wheelchairs and mobility scooters, as well as cyclists.

“This is an exciting project for Wrexham, so please spare some time to take a look at the proposals and feedback your views.”

The consultation is open until November 21.
