MOTORISTS are being advised a temporary speed limit will be in place on a main road in Wrexham near where a landslip occurred.

A section of the footpath running parallel to Newbridge Road in Newbridge collapsed down an embankment during the recent Storm Christoph.

And in a public notice published in Friday's Leader, Wrexham Council says that from March 1 a temporary 30mph speed limit will be in place on the road from its junction with A5 Holyhead Road at Whitehurst travelling northbound for a distance of 850 metres to its junction with Pentre Village Road.

This is to allow for vehicles being used in the repair works of the landslip to safely enter and exit the site.

Other public notice from Wrexham Council states that from February 8, Gresford High Street will be closed to vehicles from the Pant Lane junction for 300 metres travelling south east.

This will last for a period of two weeks and is to enable the council to undertake carriageway resurfacing works.

The alternative route for vehicles affected by the road closure is via Pant Lane, B5445 Chester Road and High Street and will be signposted.

Notice was also given of planning applications received by Wrexham Council with regards to listed buildings and conservation areas:

  • Application for construction of two new storey dwellings at Church View, Church Road, Worthenbury, Wrexham.
  • Conversion of office space at 43 King Street, Wrexham, into five residential flats over two floors with alterations to existing frontage (conservation area).
