Work Starts on New Footpath

Published: 09/10/2015

Work has started on a new footpath to improve safety near a school. Flintshire County Council earmarked the works at Bryn Road, Bryn Y Baal, as a top priority and secured £247,000 funding from the Welsh Government after a campaign to improve safety near Argoed High School. Pupil Emma Pryce submitted a petition to the Council campaigning for a footpath to be installed on the busy road to make the area safer for students walking to school. The work, which includes a footpath and new zebra crossing, is being funded through the Safer Routes in Communities Grant and will be completed by the end of November. Cllr Bernie Attridge, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for the Environment, said: “I’m delighted that the Council was able to secure funding for these improvements. This route is used by school pupils and residents on a daily basis and the new footpath and zebra crossing will help to improve safety for everyone.”
