A £1.8M road resurfacing scheme has failed to include “one of the worst roads in Flint”, a councillor has said.
Last month Flintshire Council announced it was carrying out repairs to 40 roads in the county in the next 12 months.
But Flint councillor Alex Aldridge said he was disappointed that Allt Goch in Flint had not been included in the plans and said he had contacted the council asking it to reconsider its decision.
He said: “It is in one of the worst conditions in the Flint area – it is unbelievable.
“It is a main thoroughfare for people on the school run so a lot of people use it.
“It is not about finding more money, we think this has a greater need than anywhere else.”
Cllr Aldridge said he hoped the council would consider postponing the resurfacing of another road in Flint in order to get the funds to resurface Allt Goch.
Ffordd Llewelyn, Chapel Street and Duke Street, all in Flint, are among the 40 roads on Flintshire Council’s list.
Steve Jones, head of streetscene, said: “The condition of Allt Goch had been noted during the recent highway condition assessments.
“Before any repairs to the road surface can take place, the adjacent footways require attention and the kerbs on either side of the road require raising.
“After this work has been completed, patching work will be carried out on the road to provide a permanent repair to the surface.
“The road will be monitored and any temporary repair work necessary will be carried out until the footway works are completed in the coming months.”
The programme is funded by contributions from the Welsh Government’s Highway Prudential Borrowing Initiative, with the council’s own capital resurfacing allocation to be completed during the summer months.
Before drawing up a list of the 40 sites, each road in the county was inspected by Streetscene staff to assess its condition and to ensure the roads most in need of repair receive attention immediately, Flintshire Council said.
