FLINTSHIRE Council is 'committed' to improving road safety for the county's most vulnerable users.

The Leader has previously reported concerns over speeding and cars mounting pavements along Wepre Road, through Connah's Quay and Northop Hall.

Resident Erica Mackie said she no longer feels safe walking along the pavements due to dangerous motorists.

She told the Leader she would like to see North Wales Police working closely with Flintshire Council and MP David Hanson and local residents to combat the issue.

Steve Jones, Flintshire Council's chief officer for streetscene and transportation, said: "As with all instances of poor driver behaviour, Flintshire County Council works in partnership with North Wales Police in order to investigate safety concerns on the highway network.

"Whilst an investigation into the recent incidents is currently ongoing, any highway improvements that may be highlighted will be prioritised for funding when assessed in accordance with the Council’s Safety Scheme Matrix.

"The Council is committed to improving road safety for the County’s most vulnerable road users and will be working closely with North Wales Police and the local community in order to seek a potential resolution."

The issue will be brought up at Northop Hall's next community council on September 10 at 7pm, which will also see an officer of the South Flintshire policing team present.

Inspector Steve Owens told the Leader he will do all he can on his end to ease the issue.

He added: "This requires a multi-agency partnership.

"It will be raised at the next community council meeting and we will see where we can go from there. We will engage with all relevant agencies to assess and review the issue."
