Council answers complaints about overnight noise from 2020 work

* Work on the 2020 project in Castle Street yesterday.

Denbighshire County Council has responded to complaints about noise caused to nearby residents by overnight working on the Llangollen 2020 project.

A post on social media yesterday (Monday) asked: "Anyone know why the workers doing the footpaths (were) still working at 12, waking up my little girl driving machinery in and out of market street?"

This point was later taken up by campaigning page Llangollen Advocate which posted: "Things that go bump in the night …. Yes it’s the 2020 works running on past midnight last night keeping people awake in the town it seems.

"Can Cllr Brian Jones advise when residents were going to be told that works would continue past midnight?
"For how long and on what sections will works take place overnight?"

Cllr Jones is the council’s Lead Member for Waste, Transport and the Environment, which is overseeing the 2020 project.

A spokesperson for Denbighshire County Council said: “Due to the current phase of work, the contractor needs to operate a second traffic management system in order to progress with works and provide a safe working area for the workforce.

"Operating it after 6pm reduces the impact on vehicle flow through the town, minimizing the risks of delays at peak traffic times.

“Any excessively noisy work will be carried out early in the evening as to not cause further noise disruption to residents. The last night of working will be Friday 18th February.

“The council would like to thank members of the public and businesses for their continued patience during the ongoing work.”
