A Councillor has called for a review of the speed limit on the Brymbo Link Road to be brought forward after a number of road traffic accidents.

The call to bring forward the review was made by Brymbo Councillor, Paul Rogers late last night, after an incident on the Brymbo Link Road.

In the latest incident that took place on last night, a vehicle ended up overturned on its roof. However it must be noted that speed, nor anything else have been given as a cause for this particular crash.

The incident took place just before 5:30pm yesterday near the Brymbo Cricket Club. The car itself was overturned and ended up on its roof.

Those involved in the incident tweeted at 9:30pm last night, saying that they were ok, and thanked all those who stopped to help / see if they were ok.

 

Several years ago Cllr Rogers and Brymbo Community Councillors met on site to discuss road safety concerns resulting in the installation of pedestrian refuges.

Cllr Rogers said that whilst the number of accidents has reduced since, the speed limit needs reducing.

Cllr Rogers said: “The crossing points have made it safer for pedestrians to cross the Brymbo Link Road however road traffic accidents continue on this stretch.

“Outside Brymbo Sports and Social Complex it is ridiculous that it is national speed limit when so many from the community use it and when footways are well lit. Residents of all ages from Tanyfron are quite rightly concerned about their safety crossing and travelling on this section of road.

“It’s time for an urgent review of the speed limit and I have written to officers urging action.”
