A COUNCILLOR has said plans for 70 new homes, a link road and a supermarket in Brymbo are a step closer.

Brymbo councillor Paul Rogers said the proposed Brymbo Spine Road is now “out to tender” for three weeks and he hopes work will begin by the end of the year.

The road would run across the former Brymbo Steelworks site and will connect Brymbo with neighbouring Tanyfron.

Talks on the completion of the road have stalled since 2005, but a new housing development with a proposal for 70 homes and a supermarket on the former steelworks is expected to quicken up the process of building the road.

Cllr Rogers said this was a key milestone and the fact the turnaround time on the tender was three weeks was a sign that things were moving in the right direction after many years of frustration.

Cllr Rogers has previously stressed the importance of the spine road in allowing the development of the employment land, heritage area and new school.

He said: “This spine road would lead to the completion of the steelworks development. There have been difficulties since 2005 in taking it forward but with the promise of 70 new, privately built, homes and a supermarket mean we can finally push on with the road.

“It is all about creating jobs, better infrastructure, and redeveloping the steelworks.”

He added that a Brymbo Steelworks Liaison Committee made up of local stakeholders would be called as soon as everything was in place.
