* Plans for the final phase of the town's traffic scheme.
Work is due to start on January 9 on the final phase of the traffic schemes which have reshaped the town centre over the past couple of years.
Affecting the junctions of the A5 with Castle Street and Hall Street/Hill Street, the work by contractors for the county council, which is delivering on behalf of the North and Mid Wales Trunk Road Agent, is scheduled to last for six weeks and will include:
Three new signalised crossings will be created. Two of these will be on the A5, one from the front of number 4 Berwyn Street to the side of the Armoury, and the second from the front of M’Eating Point to the front of the Welsh Methodist Chapel. The third crossing will be on Castle Street, near the A5 junction, running from the side of the chapel to the front of the shop opposite.
All three crossings will have red coloured tactile paving at either end.
The priority of the junction of Hall Street and Hill Street will be amended, with the existing island there being removed. A new uncontrolled crossing, with buff coloured tactile paving at each end, will run between the Armoury and the Grapes.
There will be a new stop-line position marked on the A5 in front of the junction.
A new asphalt footway construction will run along the Armoury side of Berwyn Street between the Hall Street/Hill Street junction to the small road at the side of M’Eating Point.
Contractors will use four car bays on the Hall Street car park and three long coach bays on the Market Street car park to set up their works cabins.
