Road improvements in Queensferry

Published: 17/12/2015

Flintshire County Council has secured funding from Welsh Government through the Local Transport Fund for a scheme to improve Queensferry Roundabout and the nearby Asda Signal Junction, both of which currently experience lengthy delays during peak periods. This proposal will complement the recently completed Deeside Corridor Traffic Signal Synchronisation scheme which has significantly improved traffic flow along the B5129 Deeside Corridor. Future development in the Deeside area, such as the Northern Gateway Development, will further increase traffic volumes on this critical junction, and these improvement works will accommodate the anticipated increase in traffic. Work on the scheme will take place from February 2016 through to April 2016 and will consist of: . Widening of slip roads from the A494 to the Queensferry roundabout . Widening of the Queensferry roundabout to create extra running lanes . Remodelling of the junction of the B5129 and the B5441 at Asda. . Signalisation of all the approaches to the Queensferry roundabout . Upgrading and linking all existing and new traffic signals. The Council apologises in advance for any delay and disruption the works may cause and will publicise details of the traffic management arrangements during the various phases of the scheme. Access to businesses and properties in the vicinity of the works will be maintained throughout the period of the works. Councillor Bernie Attridge, Flintshire County Councils Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment said: “This scheme was identified as a priority for the Council in the recently submitted North Wales Local Transport Plan and I am pleased that Welsh Government have supported the bid and recognise that improving this key junction is critical in providing resilience to the highway network on one of the key Gateways into North Wales and one that will support the projected economic growth in this area.’’ An open drop in session will take place on 7 January at the Queensferry War Memorial Institute between 12.30 and 6.30pm, where plans will be on view and Council officers will be available to answer any question or concerns that members of the public or local businesses may have about the work.
