Permanent "No Entry" signs go up at last

Created on 15/01/2022 @ 11:46

Powys County Council has completed work to install permanent “No Entry” signage at a Welshpool junction after safety concerns were raised.

Safety concerns were raised when initial tweaks to the one-way system were done in 2019 to stop traffic from turning right onto Church Street and towards the town centre.

Temporary “No Entry” signs were put in place and were due to be made permanent until the area’s county councillor Graham Breeze and the Town Council discovered plans to remove the signs completely.

Objections were raised and Welsh Government agreed to fund the work on safety grounds.

Diversions were in place from Wednesday until Friday for work to be completed

A report to recommend that the signs be approved stated: “Following discussions with Powys County Council and Welshpool Town Council; the Welsh Government has agreed to fund the introduction of a one-way traffic prohibition Order so that the temporary no entry A-frame signs can be replaced by permanent post mounted no-entry signs.”
