Dear Parent/Carer,

We have been asked to circulate the information below:

Have your say on improving routes for walking and cycling in Wrexham

This project is a collaboration between Transport for Wales and Wrexham Council and is looking at how to make it easier, safer and more convenient for pedestrians to walk and cycle on key routes into Wrexham town centre. At the same time we are looking at opportunities for wider enhancements including planting, greenery, signage and street furniture as part of the Transforming Towns initiative. 

Please note that when we use the word ‘pedestrian’ or ‘walker/walking’ we are referring not only to those who travel by foot, but also users of wheelchairs or other mobility aids.

Over the next few years we aim to look at various routes, but for now our focus is on progressing one of the following routes:

Kingsmills Road, Holt Road/Borras Road and Chester Road

Firstly, we are seeking comments on the following three routes.  Based on the feedback we receive and taking account of other factors we envisage selecting one of these three routes to progress first and, subject to funding deliver, later in 2023/24.  The other routes would then progress at a later date: 

  • A525 Kingsmills Road (including links to the town centre) between its junctions with Kings Close and Bennion Road as well as onwards links towards the town centre via Bennion Road, Salisbury Road, Salop Road and St Giles Way.
  • A534 Holt Road and Borras Road between the Cefn Road junction (the Greyhound Inn) and the A5152 junction, as well as onwards links to the town centre via Holt Street and St Georges Crescent, we have also looked at Borras Road
  • A5152 Chester Road, with initial proposals looking at the section between its junctions with Glyndwr Road and Westminster Drive

Mold Road

Secondly, we are looking for feedback on two different suggestions for the 

A541 Mold Road and Regent Street between the Plas Coch roundabout and the junction of Regent Street and Hope Street, including the A541 Mold Road, A5152 Regent Street, A5152 Bradley Road and A541 Central Road.

Please click Have Your Say Today – Wrexham Transforming Towns – Commonplace to fill in the consultation, view images and download drawings as well as making your comments heard.

We will use your comments to evolve the design of Mold Road and to choose which of the 3 routes (Kingsmill Road, Holt Road and Chester Road) to move forward with first.

We would like to thank you for taking the time and interest to take part in our consultation and we will continue to update everybody as the schemes progress.
