Drivers could not have missed new signage that has appeared overnight on key routes into the Wrexham area – with new huge ‘welcome to Wrexham’ signs being installed.
Recently the old purely brown signs, that heralded Wrexham as the home of the University, were removed leaving the three bare poles.
In coordinated work that has seen various maintenance and grass cutting taking place, the installation of the new welcome signs has occurred.
The new signs are taller than those replaced, with a picture used for the first time – of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct World Heritage Site.
Chair of the Tourism Partnership, the Lemon Tree’s Sam Regan, told us: “With confidence in the tourism industry in Wrexham growing, its fantastic to see Wrexham Council’s new signage going in place showcasing one of the regions greatest assets.”
Destination Manager at Wrexham Council, Joe Bickerton, told us: “The new signage looks really good and offers a great first impression to motorists driving into the County.”
