A NUMBER of roads across Flintshire are set to be reverted back to 30mph by the end of this week. 

Earlier this month, the Leader reported that 10 roads in Flintshire were "in the process" of reverting back to 30mph, following the recent change in speed limit. 

As of September 17, the majority of residential roads throughout Wales have been lowered from 30mph to 20mph.

The Welsh Government states that the change will 'help save lives', but it has been met with great criticism with over 460,000 people signing a petition in opposition to the 20mph limit.

Last month, it was revealed that Flintshire County Council was set to meet with the Welsh Government over the speed limit, but Mark Tami suggested that changes "seemed unlikely". 

When asked for a time frame on when the 10 roads will be back to 30mph, a spokesperson for the local authority said they expect the work to be completed this week. 


The locations to be reverted back are:

  • A549 Mold Road, Mynydd Isa
  • A549 Chester Road / Dirty Mile - Little Mountain, Buckley
  • B5127 Liverpool Road, Buckley
  • B5128 Church Road, Buckley
  • Drury Lane, Buckley
  • St Davids Park, Ewloe
  • A541 Denbigh Road, Mold
  • A5104 Warren Bank Interchange, Broughton
  • A5026 Holway Road, Holywell
  • B5121 Greenfield Road, Holywell
  • B5129 Kelsterton Road, Kelsterton
  • B5129 Queensferry Roundabout
  • White Farm Road, Buckley
  • A541 Hendre

Members of the public are also set to be given the opportunity to suggest roads to be considered to be reverted back, but the council said there was no timeframe on when that would be.
