This article is old - Published: Monday, Jan 23rd, 2017

Motorists are being warned of long delays on the A483 with ‘essential drainage’ works being undertaken throughout this week – with many already encountering them this morning.

The roadworks, which are taking place between Junctions 4 and 5 (Ruthin Road and Mold Road interchange) started this morning – however appeared to catch many motorists by surprise.

The works will be undertaken during the day under lane restrictions.

Earlier this morning that particular section of the A483 was brought to a standstill, with a broken down car and the lane restrictions resulting in long delays for motorists.

At the time of writing delays on are already in place along the A483 towards Rhostyllen and on the A525 Ruthin Road slip road.

Additionally resurfacing works are to be undertaken by NMWTRA between junctions 5 and 6 (Mold Road and Gresford Roundabout), scheduled to commence from Monday 6th February which will take approximately eight weeks. These works will require 24 hour lane restrictions.

Motorists are being advised that delays are likely while the works are undertaken and should allow extra time for their journey.

The works are being undertaken by the North and Mid Wales Trunk Agency – with details of the roadworks only being released by Wrexham Council to us this afternoon after translations delays.

Welsh Government’s Traffic Wales, and the Trunk Road Agency have not been in touch.
