Decision on Mold High Street Improvements
Flintshire County Council and Mold Town Council recently consulted on proposals to create a permanent one way system on the Lower High Street in Mold in order to improve the pedestrian and cycle environment.
There was an excellent response to the consultation with over 300 responses received in addition to the comments made on social media.
While there were a number of responses made in favour of all or part of the proposed scheme, there were a number of significant concerns raised about the potential impact of displaced traffic on adjoining residential streets and also the temporary disruption while the works were being carried out.
It has, therefore, been decided not implement the proposed one-way system and cycle lane on Lower High Street. The Council will instead focus its attention on improvements to the wider cycle network.
The proposal to renew the traffic signals on either end of the Lower High Street and the improvements to the pedestrian environment will not be implemented in the near future to prevent disruption to the town as it recovers from the Covid-19 situation. They will, however, be taken forward at a point in the future when funding allows.
The Council would like to thank everyone who took the time to respond to the consultation exercise.
