Wrexham Maelor Hospital Car Park Pedestrian / Cycleway Improvement
As part of its commitment to improve and maintain active travel links, Wrexham County Borough Council has been awarded local transport grant funding by the Welsh Government to facilitate the construction of a new footpath /cycleway within the constraints of the existing Wrexham Maelor Hospital car park.
The joint pedestrian/cycleway linking Croesnewydd Lane and Ruthin Road will provide a dedicated route which will enhance safety for pedestrians and cyclists through the hospital car park. The route links directly with existing off-road travel routes serving nearby Wrexham communities and will form part of the continued development of an integrated network of Active Travel routes across the County Borough.
The council is currently working in collaboration with the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board and its consultants to construct the link to coincide with the opening of the proposed hospital car park entrance onto the Croesnewydd Road. It is anticipated that the works will be completed in the spring/early summer.
Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “As a Council, we are committed to supporting Active Travel to help promote and encourage more people to take part in Active Travel as part of their everyday journeys.
“Our aspiration is to develop a fully integrated network of walking and cycling routes across the County Borough. This work will support a key link through to the hospital and ultimately facilitate the opening of the new access road which will ease congestion.”
