Following a feasibility study to identify options to improve a stretch of the A547, known locally as the Abergele Straights, Denbighshire County Council will be closing the road for five nights beginning on Monday June 18th. The closure will be in place at 7pm each evening until 6am the following morning and the signed diversion route will be via the A55.

In recent months, concerns have been expressed about this stretch of road, and these closures are necessary to give the council a chance to rectify the problems at a time which will cause least disruption to the travelling public.

The work that will be carried out includes grass cutting, resetting the hazard marker posts, cleaning signs and gullies, cutting back vegetation, renewing the white lines and also patch around 1000 metres of the roadside edges and potholes.

Councillor Brian Jones, Lead Member for Highways, Planning and Sustainable Travel said:  “Improving the conditions of roads and enhancing transport links is one of the Council’s key priorities.

“We hope that by carrying out this work overnight will cause as minimal disruption to road users as possible.”

The Council apologise for any inconvenience this work will cause.  The road will re-open as soon as possible after each closure.
