Four Great Highways project gets wider public consultation

The £1.25m scheme to improve links between the four famous ‘highways’ that run through the heart of Llangollen is going out to wider public consultation.

Following on from the recent online question-and-answer sessions for what is known as the Four Great Highways project a questionnaire has now been launched paper copies of which will also be available at Llangollen Library and responses to the questions can also be e-mailed direct to

The project was given the go-ahead by Denbighshire County Council following a successful application to the UK Government’s Levelling Up Fund (LUF).

The aim is to enhance the public spaces that connect Llangollen Canal, the old Ruabon to Barmouth Railway line, the River Dee and A5 Holyhead Road. 

As the first phase of a public consultation exercise four members of the project team – the council’s project managers Sian Lloyd Price and Kimberley Mason along with design expert Daniel Smith and landscape specialist Chris Brinnington from consultancy firm Burroughs & The Urbanists - recently held three separate half-hour Microsoft Teams sessions yesterday.

The first for local residents attracted around 10 participants, about four businesses were at the second and the third, for everyone else, was attended solely by llanblogger’s Phil Robinson.

Total budget for the project, which has received substantial help from Levelling Up, is around £1.25m and work is expected to be completed by March of 2024, they said.

A spokesperson for the project team said: "At this stage of the consultation we are seeking people’s early views on the four areas we have proposed for improvement.  These views will then be used to inform designs which we will share for further consultation before Easter. 

"Details of future engagement sessions will be shared on our website in due course, this will include a walkabout of the project areas with our design team in early February.  

"Further information regarding these site visits will be confirmed and promoted on our social media pages and website towards the end of the week."
