Carriageway Resurfacing of A541 Chester Road

Published: 31/07/2017

Flintshire County Council is pleased to announce that funding has been secured to carry out carriageway resurfacing and associated works at A541 Chester Road, Mold, between Tesco roundabout and the Wylfa roundabout starting on Monday 7 August for approximately three weeks. To facilitate the works a temporary one way restriction will be in place from the evening of Monday 7 August, prohibiting vehicles from travelling into Mold from the Wylfa roundabout. Vehicles will be diverted via the A494 and A5119, New Brighton. The one way restriction will be in place for the duration of the works to ensure the safety of the workforce engaged in this operation and all highway users. Access to individual properties and businesses will be maintained, although short delays may be encountered. The Council and the contractor, Roadway Civil Engineering Ltd, apologise for any delay and disruption that may be caused as a consequence of this essential maintenance work and will carry out the works as quickly as possible. Flintshire County Councils Cabinet Member for Streetscene and Countryside, Councillor Carolyn Thomas, said: “I am pleased that we have been able to fund this key scheme to maintain one of the main routes into Mold within our tight budget restrictions, which again demonstrates the commitment to the highway network from the current administration. I’m aware it’s going to be a difficult three weeks for commuters and businesses, but to help minimise disruption, the works have been set so they fall between the town’s two major events - The North Wales Blues and Soul Festival and The Food Festival.
