Wrexham Council has issued notice that the town centre will be completely free of any planned roadworks between 5th December and 8th January to prevent delays over the festive period.

The news will come as a relief following recent congestion problems caused by roadworks on the Mold Road roundabout which receives traffic from both the A483 and town centre.

The work has also had a knock on effect leading to large queues approaching the Sainsburys roundabout.

The announcement also follows the introduction of free car parking in two of the town’s central car parks to encourage visitors to the area.

Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport said:

“Ensuring the efficient movement of traffic in and around Wrexham is a key priority for the council, particularly in the run to Christmas.

“Every opportunity to create conditions to support the town centre through these challenging times is being taken including the recent introduction of free parking at two of our car parks in the town centre.

“This move to prevent planned street works over this period will ensure as far is possible, any disruption to Wrexham’s transport network is minimal.”

Free parking in the town centre is now available in the People’s Market multi storey and Crescent Road car parks from 12 noon every day.

Anyone using these car parks in the afternoon is required to obtain a ticket to display. Standard parking charges will still apply in both car parks up to 12 noon.
