Technical advisers AECOM and Ruthin-based Richards, Moorhead & Laing who are carrying out the next stage of the project are hosting the events and will provide an update on the proposals and seek the views of the public on the proposed transport planning objectives.
The exhibitions will be held on 15-16 September between 10:00am – 8:00pm at Coleg Cambria’s Kelsterton campus before moving to Deeside Leisure Centre in Queensferry on 17-18 September 10:00am – 8:00pm. The events are free to attend and open to all.
The A55/A494/A548 Deeside Corridor project will improve the road network in the area between Wrexham, Chester and Deeside and provide a boost the economy.
Two routes, recommended in the previous Stage 1 study, will be assessed. One is a package of highway and transport improvements focusing on the existing A55/A494 alignment from the River Dee Bridge to Northop and the second involving highway and transport improvements utilising the existing A458 Flintshire Bridge.
The selection of the preferred route is expected before the end of 2016.
Transport Minister, Edwina Hart said:
“The Welsh Government is investing in this multi-million pound project which is vital in improving traffic flows and access to North Wales on an important economic route and I’m pleased to see progress being made. This is a good opportunity for people to meet the project team and have their say on the proposals.”
