RESIDENTS are being invited to have their say on a number of road safety proposals near two schools.

Flintshire Council's call for views comes after a successful bid to the Welsh Government for funding to help address road safety concerns and congestion around the areas of Ysgol Estyn and Castell Alun High School.

The proposals include:

  • Introduction of a 3m shared use pathway along the length of the A550 from Penyffordd roundabout connecting to the existing footway provision at Mountain View housing estate.
  • Toucan Crossing over the A550 Wrexham Road.
  • Design improvements to a number of junctions in the area which will improve safety and visibility of vulnerable users.
  • Improvements around Castell Alun High school and Ysgol Estyn including: a 20mph speed limit, cycle friendly traffic calming measures, parking restrictions along Stryt Isa and Fagl Lane, improved footpaths around the school
  • Introduction of an ‘Access Only’ restriction to prevent motorists using it as a ‘rat run’.
  • •A right turn lane facility on Kinnerton Lane.

A council spokesman said: "In the current situation, we are unable to hold face-to-face consultation events.
