FLINTSHIRE Council say several road safety initiatives in Deeside are now complete thanks to Welsh Government funding.

Using the Road Safety Grant initiative, work to implement a package of road safety improvements on Mold Road, Ffordd Llanarth and the High Street, Connah’s Quay is now complete.

Work includes interactive school warning signs, construction of a footway facility along Clivedon Road linking to Hollowbrook Drive, installation of a zebra crossing on Mold Road and improved road signage and carriageway markings and carriageway resurfacing works being undertaken at key junctions.

Councillor Carolyn Thomas, cabinet member for Streetscene and countryside, said; “I am really pleased, as are all the local councillors in the area, that these works have been completed successfully.

“These much needed safety improvements will ensure that children are safe on their way to and from school.

“The scheme also improves the viability of active modes of travel for the benefit of the local community.”

Speaking about the improvements, Councillor Paul Shotton added: “These improvements will be very well received and I am sure that residents who have struggled in the past will appreciate the fact that the town is becoming more and more accessible.”
