Surely they cannot be serious about continuing with more of those disgusting paving slabs down. The ones already down look terrible. There’s nothing wrong with the red bricks. Even visitors to the town have mentioned how awful the new white slabs are already filthy.April 3, 2019 at 2:35 pm #166271

The first lot of ‘improvements’ have now been down for a few months – I wonder if any of the retailers in that part of town can report they have had an increase in turnover- if not then why invest in more grey slabs?April 4, 2019 at 12:44 pm #166317
We’ll have to agree to disagree. I think the new slabs look much better than the old red bricks, much more modern. In fact, the town centre almost looked nice with all the lights up at Christmas time last year. It looks lighter and cleaner overall. Of course they are going to dull and get a bit dirty during this weather, but in the summertime this will look superb, I reckon.April 4, 2019 at 1:46 pm #166318

I also agree, you may knock the cost of it in these times I guess, but they do look better than the red paviers which now look dated, and reminds me of the big area in Rhyl that is brick paved and looks c***
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.April 5, 2019 at 8:02 am #166359
Back to my point have businesses in the area seen an increase in footfall and spend – if not what is the rate of return on the investment in new slabs- it looks nice for those people that used to walk on the red bricks but if there has not been a benefit to the retailers then why bother?
If no gain, then the money could have gene into many other service areas that are being cut.April 5, 2019 at 9:08 am #166360
Excellent point, why waste money when there are other things need doing to entice people to shop in Wrexham.April 5, 2019 at 9:41 am #166363
They could have saved a lot of money and paved it with broken promises!April 5, 2019 at 9:58 am #166365
If anything at all needs improving in Wrexham is the need for a multi storey car park in the hospital.April 5, 2019 at 4:13 pm #166394
And a decent live music venue (or one at all other that a little stage in a pub somewhere).
I can’t help but think if someone were to build a large arena here in Wrexham it would solve a load of problems. I mean, the nearest arena is, what, 40/50 miles away? One here would serve the whole of N.Wales and surrounding area, would increase footfall, increase food outlets, increase need for more hotel rooms, ensure the town was better served with public transport (they would have to) and create loads of local jobs.
And no-one can say it wouldn’t work, the few gigs they have put on at the Rcecourse have worked, and the uni can draw in a crowd for ComicCon twice a year despite there being plenty of that sort of thing in Liverpool and Manchester.
