Consultation on improvements to A494 Aston Hill footpath
Following a successful bid to the Welsh Government for funding to improve the Aston Hill footpath, Flintshire County Council is inviting residents to have their say on the proposed improvements, which are intended to benefit both pedestrians and cyclists.
The scheme is part of a wider integrated transport proposal within the local area and the proposals will include footway widening, shared pedestrian-cycle facilities, new crossing points, lighting improvements, fencing and improved signage.
Flintshire’s Cabinet Member for Streetscene, Councillor Glyn Banks, said:
“I’m pleased that the Welsh Government has awarded us the funding to carry out this much needed work. It will improve and upgrade the existing pedestrian footway between Ewloe Roundabout and Aston Road, turning it into a shared facility for both pedestrians and cyclists.
“It will also make the area safer by relocating the Old Aston Hill side road crossing point and by removing the localised pinch point at Aston Road.
“We need your views to help us to provide a ‘tailor made’ scheme that meets the needs of the local community. We want to enhance the footway provision at this location and make our network safer and improve connectivity within the local area.”
In the current situation, we are unable to hold face-to-face consultation events. However, we do want to hear what you think about the proposals, so we are asking you to view the proposals online at www.flintshire.gov.uk and search for ‘A494 Aston Hill SUP’ where a short questionnaire has been included for your comments.
If you don’t have access to a computer, please call to register your views on: 01352 701234. The consultation opens on 16 July and runs until midnight on 9 August 2021.
