Traffic Wales is to begin essential works on the A483 in Wrexham between junctions 5 and 7 to increase the length of 2 central reserve crossovers together with drainage and barrier upgrades.
Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said, “I welcome this announcement which will allow for major resurfacing works to take place safely later in the year.
“It’s important that there is continued investment in our roads infrastructure to ensure this vital road link is maintained into the future.”
The works start on 1 June 2021 and are scheduled to finish on 11 July 2021.
These are major works and drivers can expect disruption.
There will be full overnight closures at the start and end on of the scheme to enable the installation and dismantling of temporary barrier systems at both locations.
