A traffic light fault that has caused increased congestion around the Wrexham Maelor Hospital is unlikely to be resolved until the end of the week.

Over the past few days there have been a number of frustrated motorists in touch with about increased congestion and traffic issues around the Wrexham Maelor Hospital – particularly around the evening rush hour.

There have been issues with gridlock in the hospital car park, as well as along Watery Road, Croesnewydd Road and around the Technology Park.

In some cases it has taken two hours for people to get off the hospital car park.

There had been complaints that a fault with traffic lights had been causing the problems for motorists, something which Wrexham Council have today confirmed is the case.

A spokesperson for Wrexham Council said: “There are issues with traffic lights that are causing congestion in the Maelor hospital area which is causing inconvenience.

“We’re working with partners to find a solution to the issues but a new part cannot be found until Friday.

“Please allow extra time for your journey.”

We have also contacted various stakeholders about infrastructure and traffic issues across the town centre.
