Councillor gives update on Abbey Road speeding

DESPITE residents’ concerns about vehicles speeding along Abbey Road in Llangollen, police say they have no record of any motorist being booked for exceeding the limit there.

That’s the latest information from the area’s county councillor, Stuart Davies.

Residents expressed their worries over speeding on the road at a meeting late last year and Cllr Davies promised to make a Freedom of Information request to North Wales Police to see how many tickets might have been issued.

He says he has now had the official answer back which shows nobody has been booked.

Cllr Davies said: “I’ve just had a report back from Sergeant Paul Hughes which says that no tickets have been issued on Abbey Road for speeding and, despite several visits by the police with hand-held radar guns, no offences have been reported.

“Sgt Hughes also told me that roads policing unit had also been down there on numerous occasions to provide local police with assistance and that they continue to do so.”

Cllr Davies added: “The offer I originally made last year to facilitate the setting up of a community group to use a hand-held radar gun to deter speeding on Abbey Road is still open. Inspector Gareth Jones is willing to help with this.

“Nobody has come forward so far but the offer is still there.”

Cllr Davies says that if anyone in Abbey Rd is interested in helping with a community-led speed deterrence group they should contact him on 01978 860832 or 07967313792 or by email at:
