Work on Llangollen Temporary Active Travel Scheme
Further work has taken place on a temporary active travel scheme in Llangollen. As part of the scheme in the town centre white lines have been painted on either side of the temporary rubber kerbs and bollards to make them more visible.
The temporary scheme was introduced to facilitate social distancing and make it easier for people to travel actively within the town centre.
Emlyn Jones, Denbighshire County Council’s Head of Planning and Public Protection, said, “Following some concerns a site inspection was undertaken by road safety engineers which found no issues of concern, however further work to enhance the scheme has taken place. This has included the painting of white lines.”
Starting today (19th April) planters will be added helping to improve the visibility of the rubber kerbs and bollards and being more visually attractive.
Emlyn Jones added, “The active travel scheme aims to assist and facilitate social distancing in the town as lockdown restrictions ease and visitors return to our town centres.
“It is also aimed at reducing car journeys, improving air quality and helps provide safe routes for pedestrians and cyclists as well as providing health and well-being benefits.”
Public feedback will continue to be collected throughout the scheme.
