Published: 22/04/2014

Flintshire County Council has been awarded just over £300,000 from the Welsh Government for road safety schemes and ongoing road safety awareness training. The funding will be used for road improvements to the B5151 at Trelawnyd, the B5441 from Queensferry to Garden City, Bagillt High Street and the B5125 Ewloe to Hawarden costing a total of £200,000. The remaining £103,000 will be spent on raising safety awareness including motorcycle intervention training, young drivers pass plus and pre-driver awareness sessions, older driver development workshops and child pedestrian skills training. Councillor Bernie Attridge, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment said: “I’m very pleased to announce that we have been successful in our applications for all four road safety schemes and secured revenue funding for safety awareness and training initiatives targeted at those high risk and vulnerable groups of road users. “As in previous years we will be working in partnership with our neighbouring local authorities to deliver some of the safety awareness and training initiatives. These measures build on our earlier successes regarding Safe Routes in Communities and collectively make a positive contribution to road safety.”
