New-style park and ride service for Llangollen

* How the new Llangollen park and ride service could look.

Organisers say plans are progressing to open a park and ride service with a difference for Llangollen.

They say the completion of the car parking facility at the new Nature Park at Wenffrwd just outside town on the A539 offers the perfect opportunity to begin operating a service that's completely unique in Wales.

Group spokesperson David Davies said: “For too long the town has sought a park and ride facility and now we have the ideal opportunity to provide one. 

"The plan is to operate during the summer at weekends and every day during the July and August peak tourist period.

"We will use part of the direct route along the old railway track to a visitor welcome area in Mill Street car park, behind the Ponsonby pub.

"We plan to operate a half-hourly service - recognising animal welfare considerations if we experience a very hot summer - and financial modelling of such a service so far looks viable."

Mr Davies added: "This service will be a significant tourist attraction and once again a first in Wales.  

"Our resources manager now has as his top priority the recruitment of the 23 donkeys the service will require to haul the park and ride vehicle on a shift basis.  

"Also being worked out are the specifications of the animal welfare units, complete with fodder facilities, needed at each end of the route and details of the training of the staff who will operate the service.”
