Denbighshire council have obtained funding to modify roads and pavements in Llangollen to allow people to move around town more safely during the Covid-19 pandemic.
They have made a number of proposals. You can see the details of the proposals and have your say on the proposals here.
- Wider pavements and space for cycling are welcome.
- Assisting cafes moving into the road space is welcome and will create a more human friendly town.
- The link between Hall Street and Berwyn Street (A5) should remain open to pedestrians and cyclists.
- Reversing the direction of flow of vehicles on Church Street will eliminate the use of this route as a rat-run. It would be useful if it was made two way for cyclists. Also, to avoid diverting more traffic into the town centre, it may be better to start the one way from the junction with Llys-Y-Barcty.
- Turning all one way roads into two way for cycling should be considered.
- The routes to the town’s schools should be considered and improved. Improvements could include wider pavements outside the primary school, a school street scheme at drop off / pick up times and improved safety at the Brook street – A5 junction.
- Bicycle parking could be distributed around the town centre and should ideally be covered where possible.
