This will be fun at Christmas unless they come up with a new entrance to Sainsburys from the by-pass. User’s of the Stansty bridge knows how the entire town was gridlocked when they tried out a one way system or when the tunnel is closed for repairs.
A junction coming off the bypass that bypasses the junction coming off the bypass into Wrexham!
That’s 4 new connections to and from the road effectively going straight into a car park positioned about 200 yards before one of the busiest junctions on the A483. Sounds like gridlocks all round.
Just proves one thing that there is way too much overdevelopment in that one area. Costa already built on car park space and now McDonald’s want to build on car park space in the Argos/Range area where it is already difficult to get a space during busy times.
Is there nowhere else they can build stuff in Wrexham? It’s getting ridiculous. Perhaps we need a proper ring-road so everything doesn’t need to be forced to be built down one vertical corridor for convenience and mostly concentrated around the 2 main junctions into Wrexham.
Surely the table comparing the Costa application with the McDonalds one is the most passive aggressive piece of planning documentation ever seen.
The council have really hamstrung themselves by allowing Costa – if they refuse McDonalds based on highway grounds, which they probably still will, one of the inspectors will have the easiest job in the world.
It’s strange, there’s been an appetite for a drive thru McDonalds in this town as far back as I remember, from the site where the flats were built between the A483 and Chester road at the Gresford roundabout, to the Dickens site, and now we have a solid planning app and it’s one of the worse locations.
I’d wait a couple of years for the WAG to build that new Junction 4 on the A483 and put it there.
Ha, well not being a councillor I don’t need to declare any personal interests. ;)
