Drivers urged to pay attention to road closure signage as floodwaters persist for people living in or visiting the wrexham area

Drivers are being urged to pay attention to road closure signage in place due to flooding across the county borough.

It comes after reports of some motorists ignoring the signs and driving through flood water caused by Storm Dennis.

At the time of writing several road closures remain in place, including the Straight Mile and Overton Road in Bangor-on-Dee and the A525 Cross Lanes to Bangor on Dee.

However despite the road closure signage and warnings from the police and Wrexham Council, a number of motorists have attempted to drive through the flood water.

A statement posted by NWP Wrexham Rural this afternoon, says: “Flooding is still an issue in Bangor on Dee with roads in the village closed as well as the A525 and the Straight Mile.

“Do not attempt to drive through flood water… the waves generated are causing additional flooding and further issues. Roads are closed for a reason!”
