MONTH-LONG roadworks are set for a main route in Wrexham. 

Two-way lights will be on place on the A541 Mold Road in Gwersyllt from April 11 as Wales & Wales Utilities completes gas works on the network.

The road is alternative route to the A483 in and out of Wrexham. However, the resurfacing works on the A483 near Rossett are due to end on April 6 - so shouldn't coincide.

Wales & West Utilities' programme controller, Adrian Degg, said: “We will soon be working in the Mold Road area of Gwersyllt in Wrexham to upgrade the gas network.

"This work is part of an investment in the area to keep the gas flowing to local homes and businesses today, and to make sure the gas network is ready to transport hydrogen and biomethane in the future.

“In agreement with Wrexham County Borough Council and in order to minimise disruption over the Easter Holidays, our work will start on April 11 and, barring any unforeseen circumstances, we expect to complete our work in early May (2023)."


He added: “In order to keep the local community, road users and our colleagues safe while we work, rolling two-way traffic lights will be in place along Mold Road between its junctions of Hardwick Drive and High Street.

"We appreciate that working on roads such as these is not ideal, but this work really is essential to keep the gas flowing to heat homes and power businesses in the area, and to make sure the gas network is fit for the future.
