WREXHAM Council looks set to scrap a controversial one way system under Stansty Bridge.
The system was trialled for six weeks from September, but was cut short after being met by stern opposition from motorists.
It was launched in response to concerns over the narrowness of the bridge and the standards of the pedestrian footpath which runs beneath it.
However, drivers and nearby residents were up in arms after it caused weeks of traffic mayhem.
In a consultation, which received 600 responses, only 10 per cent of people wanted the one way system and footpath improvements to remain permanent.
A report on the trial from Wrexham Council’s environment department will go before the authority’s executive board on Tuesday.
It recommends members agree not to proceed with the one-way traffic system and footway widening on a permanent basis.
The report states: “Feedback received through consultation with residents, businesses, emergency services and other interested parties indicated there is little support for the permanent introduction of the one-way system and widening of the existing footway.”
It also says increased traffic levels were observed along Mold Road during the trial, although it claims levels were distorted due to the temporary closure of the A5152 through Rhostyllen.
