TESTS on the drinking water supply during the clean up operation on the A525 in Bangor on Dee following a lorry fire came back “all clear” according to water company.

A lorry fire (on Thursday, May 29) saw the road closed whilst the highway and verge was cleared and repairs are made to the highway.

On Friday (June 30), Wrexham Council said the A525 would "remain closed until further notice, as there is a possibility of contamination on site” and on Monday specialist cleaning contractors were at the site removing the contents of the lorry and debris.

Concerns by local residents were raised about the possible contamination in the area, but water company Hafren Dyfrdwy has confirmed that tests on the drinking water supply came back all clear.

A spokesperson from Hafren Dyfrdwy, said: “Last week, we were called to a vehicle emergency on the A525. While there, we worked with Wrexham Council and Natural Resources Wales on the clean-up operation and created barriers to protect our water supply and prevent any pollution entering the local river.

“Ensuring a clean and safe drinking water supply is our top priority and whilst we constantly monitor our treatment processes and the quality of water leaving our treatment works, as a precaution we undertook further testing which were all clear.”

This morning, the council confirmed that the resurfacing works were underway on the road, and now the latest update is that the road is expected to reopen this evening.

A spokesperson for Wrexham Council said: “We are expecting the road to be fully re-opened by 8pm this evening (04.07.2023).”
