HUNGRY motorists are being urged to choose quieter times as the reopening of drive-thru restaurants is expected to cause queues today.

Today, McDonald's drive-thrus in Wrexham and Flintshire are the latest to reopen, following other chains like Starbucks and Costa.

Traffic Wales urged people to take care and consider waiting for their Big Mac and fries.

The agency tweeted: "With more drive-thrus starting to open across the network, please be aware nearby roads are likely to get busier which could be a hazard for road users.

To help reduce the risk to yourself & others, please consider going at a quieter time to avoid queues."

The message was supported by Wrexham Town's policing team.

Fast-food chain McDonald's reopened drive-thrus from 11am today (Wednesday, June 3) at its Broughton Shopping Park, Flint (Holywell Road), A55 Junction 31 (near Holywell), Mold King Street, Mold Gateway Services A55 and Chirk Retail Park restaurants.

With restaurant teams adjusting to new procedures to enable safe working and social distancing, the company says "things may take a little longer" – and high demand is anticipated.
