B5101 Ffrith

Published: 08/08/2017

Flintshire County Council continues to monitor the situation on the section of the B5101, Ffrith, that has been affected by a recent landslip on the bank above the road. Initial investigations have raised concerns regarding the underlying structure of the road and the condition of the road surface continues to worsen due to the instability of the bank above it. National Resource Wales is investigating the potential contributory factors which may have led to the incident occurring and the Council has commissioned a specialist geo-technical engineer to undertake a more detailed ground Investigation which will include recommendations for remedial work at the site. The Council is reviewing options to open the road as soon as possible, however, given the nature of the works that will be required, the road closure is likely to remain in place for the immediate future. Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Streetscene, Councillor Carolyn Thomas, said: “The Council is intending to hold a local public meeting with the community and our partners on Tuesday 15 August at 7pm in the Ffrith Community Centre to update those affected by the closure.”
