    Jack – it is my understanding that Poyser St will also be made one-way to prevent the street becoming a rat-run as you have rightly pointed out.

    As I have already stated it is for a trial period so we will need to monitor the change in driving patterns to see if matters are improved or not as the case may be.

    Cllr Phil Wynn

    A simpler solution might be a single yellow line all the way down the Bellevue side with 8/9am – 5/6pm restrictions. Residents could then still park overnight when there is less traffic around but it would improve things during the day when it seems to be causing most problems.

    I’m pretty sure Poyser Street will still become a rat run as I would assume it will be one way in the opposite direction to Ruthin Road. Please don’t tell me it will be in the same direction……….

    The only problem is the side streets in the day are already clogged with vehicles belonging to town-centre workers, shoppers , Gerard Bakery staff and the situation will only get worse for those living in these streets if we were to do as you suggest.

    As one of the local members I am being asked to carry out a balancing act, whereby we are trying to keep everyone happy. Only the trial will prove if a one-way system will improve traffic flows in the area. If it does not, having given it a reasonable time, then I shall ask for the trial to be ended without delay.

    If residents can’t park in their own street because of Gerrard’s staff and town centre workers and shoppers then some streets may need some sort of permit system applied. I have occasionally used Ruthin Road to park for an hour or two but I wouldn’t have the cheek to park in any of the residential side streets (Peel St, Gibson St etc) while I went to work all day.

    Everyone needs to step back a bit and think about what they are suggesting here. Just because it is a little inconvenient at times to negotiate parked cars does not mean that draconian measures need to be taken to prevent parking on this road, or any change to the traffic flow. It is not a major road, it is reasonably wide, and with a little patience it is easily negotiated. There are far more important problems for the council to spend money on and for us to get worked up over.

    It’s simple, double yellow lines on one side will alleviate the problem

    I must have been lucky because I have not had any problems negotiating this road. Give me this road as it is now, over one way or ‘laughing’ policemen any day.

    I agree, whenever I’ve used the road I’ve had no issues whatsoever. Out of interest, do you think a one-way system would work ? I just think it’s a complete waste of time and money as I can’t see any way it would become permanent.

    Of course a one way system would work…we’d make it work. Is it necessary…NO.

    Double yellow lines are needed from Ruabon Road/Penybryn to the new traffic lights, not a one way system. Reinstate the roundabout with traffic lights activated by pedestrians wishing to cross the road. All traffic would be halted whilst people are crossing and traffic flow resumed by allowing a staggered start, say Bradley Road/Victoria Road first and Ruthin Road in both directions a few seconds later.

    Of course parking isn’t a problem for Councillors as they have free parking in the centre of town at the Guildhall. In fact the senior management get free parking too. None of the rest of the less well paid staff get free parking, they have to pay the extortionate amount to come to work.
    There have been several attempts to make the parking for staff in the Council fair, by making everyone pay but the Councillors won’t vote away their free parking. So much for a democratic organisation.
