An investment of £3 million has been put into improving roads across Wrexham – with over 70 schemes taking place across the county borough.

The funding is part of Wrexham Council’s ‘carriageway improvement fund’ for 2015/2016 and so far 24 of 75 schemes have already been completed. A further seven schemes are due to be completed next week.

Wrexham Council say work has also commenced on a ‘surfacing dressing programme including specialist surface treatment over 42 sites across the county borough’.

Areas included in the scheme are Tatham Road in Ruabon, the A528 Overton Cross, Heol Wen in Coedpoeth and Ffordd Garmonydd in Little Acton, and Cwmalis Road at Froncysyllte and Holyhead Road, Chirk.

A resurfacing project at Groesfan, in Penycae has seen the area undergo a transformation where a total of 50 Council and privately owned houses have benefited from works fronting their properties as well as improving access and the look of the area.

Councillor David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport said: “We are committed to continuing to improve the road surfaces around the County Borough and despite the difficult financial position this administration has been able to invest a further £1.2m in infrastructure maintenance this year and as part of our rolling programme that will see 75 projects coming to fruition during this financial year.

“This has been put in place to help us deal with the current backlog of structural maintenance on carriageways and footways that can only be reduced by adopting a long term strategic approach.”
