A NEW path has been opened on a road in Wrexham that was closed following a landslide 16 years ago.

Wrexham Council has constructed a new path along the closed section of Queens Road in Brymbo.

This is the latest investment by the council following previous resurfacing work between Nant Court and Station Road.

Part of Queens Road was closed by the local authority, in 2008 following a landslide in Brymbo, and has been off-limits to pedestrians and vehicles since.

However, a new path has been installed by the council, much to the delight of local councillors. 

Groundworks were undertaken by council contractors before installing a new three-metre-wide path, removing the metal railings, and installing new bollards at either end.

Councillor Paul Rogers, for Brymbo Ward, who fought to secure funding for the improvements has welcomed the works.


He said: "As Councillor I am pleased that Queens Road has now been reopened as a multi-use path for residents to use.

"The fenced off section of road had also become an eyesore over recent years and these works have made a huge difference.

"Residents have also raised concerns about road safety resulting from the closure and I am currently working with council officers on further improvements between Nant Court and Station Road with work hopefully starting in the near future."
