Published: 26/01/2016

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. The works are proposed to take place from February through to April 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 while the work is underway. Councillor Bernie Attridge, Cabinet Member for the Environment said: “I am pleased that Welsh Government has supported the bid. Delays during the construction are inevitable, but we ask the members of the public to be patient while these works are carried out. I would encourage local residents and businesses to attend the drop in session this week to find out more about the scheme During the works it is anticipated that slip roads from the A494 onto the Queensferry Roundabout will be closed for periods to facilitate widening and signalling works. Temporary traffic lights and lane restrictions will be in operation and while all measure will be taken to avoid disruption, delays will be expected. A second drop in session will take place on the 28 January at the Queensferry War Memorial Institute between 1.00pm and 6.30pm, where plans will be available for viewing 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.
