Phil I counter all of your ridiculous bluster with one statement and any other utterly delusional councillors they want to send in to try and find support.
Nothing wrong with Wrexham TOWN. Proud to be part of this TOWN. Many tens of thousands agree – now jog on.
It’s still a Welsh border. If it were an international border between 2 different non union countries, the action would still be the same. Welsh Government responsible for Wales and Westminster responsible for England. It’s no different to having different Covid restrictions and rules across the border in Cheshire and Shropshire vs Wales when the virus is still the same.
Okay – and what do you want us to do about it? Everyone knew that Ty Pawb was going to be a poor idea. Things haven’t changed since. Is there perhaps someone you can contact there or at the council to raise the issue? I’m sure if they were aware enough people wanted kids events there then they’d put more on.October 23, 2021 at 12:48 pm in reply to: Wrexham joins the ride on the city merry go round! #210498
So I hear that there was some seriously desperate Yes voting on the poll from somewhere to get validation to go through with the bid. That’s normal behaviour.
As usual, some of the people who are amongst the most privileged in the entire county sounding off and having a cry acting as if they’ve been unfairly targeted. Councillors in question who are offended by a factual comment, need to get a grip and download a virtual crying app on their free iPads to help them get over it.
The Romans knew the importance of the A5 as Watling Street, a very ancient and important key route. However, modern day transport planners lack the same foresight and have completely failed to update it to keep up with modern day traffic demands.
You only had to see the sheer volume of traffic on there throughout the Summer holidays and the other regular busy congestion periods on there, to see that in its current form, it is not sustainable for the traffic flow that goes through there.
Whatever happened to the Welsh Government’s plans to build loads of factory-made modular homes to quickly increase the supply of affordable homes across the country.
Surely that should be something the WAG and WCBC should be looking into to increase the council and social housing stock across the country.
I’m not sure what the costings would be, but surely less than the £200,000 quoted for each bricks and mortar traditional house and less in labour costs as modular houses are meant to be a lot quicker to put up.
It comes as no surprise whatsoever, but unfortunately nothing will be done about it. There’s been petitions circulating for months to escalate things, as well as local road users having to take ridiculous detours or ones not suitable for larger vehicles. People who do not want to have to divert all the way via Llangollen are going over the Bont bridge via Pontcysyllte, which probably wasn’t designed for all the additional traffic it is dealing with now.
Whenever they close the A483 stretch overnight, they have to pay a man with a van and a road closed sign to stand on Pont the turnoff from the Llangollen road and prevent any HGVs who might be following sat nav advice in order to stop them going down towards the Bont bridge and getting stuck and thereby making sure they go via Llangollen.
Of course they sent Ken Skates down there a month ago looking all concerned asking the Welsh Government to do something, but no luck haha.July 6, 2021 at 7:14 pm in reply to: Senior councillor currently on ‘working holiday’ in Panama #206602
