The county council says it will implement its plans to allow better social distancing in Llangollen town centre by the middle of this month.
The Active Travel schemes approved for this town and other in Denbighshire were given the go-head by county councillors at the end of August.
But there had been speculation about a hold-up as work has not yet started in Llangollen.
However, in answer to a question from llanblogger about this, a spokesperson for Denbighshire County Council said: “The proposed scheme is scheduled to go ahead as planned with works commencing on site in mid-October.”
Locally, the work will mean:
* The creation of more space for social distancing by widening the pavements along Castle Street and on Abbey Road at the junction with Castle Street by the removal of parking and the use of ‘lane defenders’ to create safe areas for pedestrians and cyclists.
* Creating a ‘one-way’ street on the first section of Market Street as it leaves Market Street. The one-way section would only allow traffic to enter Market Street from Castle Street. Vehicles wishing to enter Castle Street from Market Street will follow the route via East Street and Parade Street.
The council has said that the changes will be made by a temporary traffic order for up to 18 months and that their effect be closely monitored as they are introduced.
He said: “Castle Street businesses are angered to see that the county council is proceed with the traffic order banning all parking and deliveries in the street on the pretence of Covid-19 social distancing and active travel reasons.
“Twenty-eight businesses - 80% of all operating businesses in the street - individually signed letters of objection to DCC."
