Roadworks not ‘one-way’ connected

Created on 04/10/2010 @ 14:39


Welshpool motorists can expect town centre delays for up to six weeks, and the bad news is that the work is not connected to the proposed one-way system which will follow.
Traffic lights are controlling car flow on the Church Bank in the shadows of St Marys Church and are expected to be in place on various stretches of the road until mid November.
The work is essential as part of a renewal of the town’s mains gas system with town planners pointing out that it is not part of the one-way system that is due to be in place for the opening of Tesco in February next year.
“We have worked closely with the contractors to ensure the work is done in sections so that disruptions are minimal for motorists,” said Town Clerk Robert Robinson. “The work is essential and we can expect traffic lights to be operational for the next four weeks. There will be further work required for a few days on top but it shouldn’t extend beyond the six weeks which motorists have been warned about.”
Signs have been positioned at the Rhallt by-pass turning to advise visitors to enter the town through the train station roundabout. Disruptions this morning were minimal and traffic appeared to flow steadily into the town centre from Church Bank.
Welshpool’s one-way system was due to be operational by now but delays have meant it is not likely to be ready until December at the earliest.
