Wouldn’t be a webchat without a question about the speed cameras. So here’s two..!
Could you please ask Inspector Paul Wycherley if they intend on setting up any speed enforcement on the A5156 Llan y Pwll Link Road in Wrexham?
If the answer is no then why not? There is speed enforcement on the A483 almost daily but on the A5156 Llan y Pwll, that runs directly behind hundreds of peoples homes, where cars and especially motorcycles thrash their vehicles at silly speeds every single day and night there is nothing.
AND – Why do we never see the Arrive alive speed camera van on the Llanypwll link road. Some evenings and weekends it’s like a racetrack.
PW: These vans are situated on key routes where statistical data shows speeding is an issue. Thank you for the information I promise I will get this to our Go Safe team this afternoon to assess if they can attend there.
I can’t stop laughing! Like GoSafe will ever do anything useful. If it ain’t the A483 forget it!
Wonder if we will get any lane markings on the approach to the roundabout from Wrexham BEFORE there is an accident, or do we have to wait until something happens there???
Unfortunately, you will have to wait until there is a serious accident before something is done. That is the way things are done around here.
I think it’s falling on deaf ears asking for any help from the Police. Unless somebody is seriously hurt or killed then nothing will get done and you won’t get heard.
I have been complaining for years about cars and especially lunatic motorbike riders road racing around Wrexhan, particularly on the A5156 Llan y Pwll bypass, and nothing has been done. Your just wasting your time.
Police? Please remind me who they are or what they do?
Are you sitting in Weatherspoons as you write this?
Cmaj – Audi drivers are known for being complete tw@ts.
Nothing will get done. I’ve been complaining (along with lots of other people) about the speeds on the A5156 Llan y Pwll link road for years, nobody gives a crap. The A5 must be THE most dangerous road around. GoSafe and Road Policing just don’t care I’m afraid.
I see speed checks have started on this stretch of road at last with a 94mph recorded on the first outing!
Yes it’s very sad that we have to wait for a fatal accident to happen on a stretch of road before people’s brains actually get into gear and do something about it.
That just goes to show how little gets done around here then doesn’t it. I’ll probably still be going on about it in another 4 years.
That road is being used as a racetrack and has been ever since it was converted into a dual carriageway from a single. It will take a fatal accident before somebody has the brain to actually do something about it.
