    For short notice and short durations I don’t think a closure needs to be advertised via the usual routes.

    For something planned, and repeating I would expect the full traffic order process to need to be followed . Cheshire West do for Chester Races.

    But this shows how much of a shambles the whole system is. Utility contractors can just turn up and close roads off for planned work with no notice or warning to the public and Wrexham Council let them get away with it.
    Wrexham Council used to email a weekly list with all the planned closures, lane restrictions and temporary traffic lights but they stopped it which further keeps the public in the dark.
    Same with the weekly planning list which means industrial developments in residential areas are getting through planning because nobody saw the A4 notice at the back of the site so nobody knew it was happening.

    Wrexham Council’s own policy was not to have shared footway/cycleways but that seems to have gone out the door over the last few years.

    Rossett often gets mentioned often as the location for a Wrexham North station but I don’t think anything is confirmed.

    Seems to be all talk and no action though.

    Town centre is pedestrianised.

    Granted there are a bazillion exceptions on some streets which makes it so confusing that lots of people ignore it and nobody enforces it.

    If you’re commuting to Liverpool/Manchester from Wrexham you tend to leave quite early in the morning to avoid the worst of the traffic on the M53/M56, but if you then leave work early you’ll be on the A483 at the same time as everyone else at home time.

    I don’t think the gateway project is a “roads” project and isn’t on hold because it’s more about improving public transport, but we’ll see.
    Might be worth asking Lesley Griffiths, if only to remind her that WG have promised funding for it.

    I would assume so – although they’ve been put on hold until WG can decide what they want to do, so it may still happen but it’s less certain now.

    Seems to be a habit – extra train services promised and road improvement projects get announced a few weeks before elections, then get put on hold. Grass is greener, bear in woods etc.

    It’s not very encouraging that their campaign seems to be based on “we’re less worse than they are”.
    The leaflet that came though the other day was similar – give us your second vote (i.e. not your first) because you don’t want the Conservatives in charge.

    Why fix it properly when you can just change your own policy to reduce the number of repairs?

    This keeps the insurers happy because they only have to pay out when the council don’t comply with their own rules.

    It happened a few weeks ago at Arriva’s Rhyl depot. The X51 (and other routes) were cancelled/cut back for a few days and no information was on Arriva’s website or Twitter about it so it was kept quiet.
