We are making improvements to the A483 corridor.
Project status: WelTAG Stage 2
Contractors: Mott Macdonald and their partners: Richards, Morehead and Laing.
Why we are doing it
The A483 is regularly congested. We want to improve how traffic moves around Wrexham and the wider north Wales region.
We are working with stakeholders to assess congestion issues. We will work on a list of potential options.
We will consider the positives and negatives of the potential options and identify the preferred ones.
The project team will use:
- traffic data
- environmental data
- engineering survey information
We will present the preferred options at a public consultation event to ask stakeholders advice. This information and our evaluation will help us identify the preferred options.
Public information events: summer 2019
Identification of a preferred scheme: autumn 2019
Public consultation: autumn 2019
Public Inquiry (if needed): spring 2021
Estimated construction start date (subject to the minister's approval): spring 2022
How we are consulting
We are planning to hold public consultation events before the end of 2019. The consultation will last for 12 weeks.
