A MAYOR has spoken out once again over an accident ‘blackspot’ following a second accident in just under three weeks.

Cllr Gerry Frobisher, mayor of Prestatyn, has deemed a stretch of Ffordd Talargoch in Meliden as a “notorious” accident hot spot following two incidents.

Last month, a woman was taken to hospital after being hit by a car near the One Stop Shop. Another patient was also taken to the Bodelwyddan hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

This month, in the same location, cllr Frobisher spied paramedics treating what seemed to be a young boy.

“I attended the scene and saw an ambulance with paramedics treating what appeared to be an eight or nine year old boy in the middle of the road,” cllr Frobisher added.

“I have been in touch with Denbighshire County Council Highways who have started work into the feasibility of new signage. I will be reporting this recent accident to the Council.

“This stretch of Ffordd Talargoch is a notorious accident hot spot where people of all ages have walked into the road from the shop or from the park entrance right across the road going to the shop. The road forms an hour glass shape in that two wide lanes approach from either side of the village, then the road narrows, and also has parked cars along the road from the shop to the pub, causing even more danger.”

Cllr Frobisher wants ‘beware pedestrian crossing’ signs placed at both ends of the narrow length of road.

He added: “This will make drivers more aware of the possibility of pedestrians crossing the road.”

A spokesperson for the Welsh Ambulance Service added: "We were called at shortly after 3.50pm on Thursday, January 4 to reports a pedestrian had been hit by a car on Ffordd Talargoch in Meliden.

"We sent a crew in an emergency ambulance and a boy was taken to Ysbyty Glan Clwyd with injuries which are not believed to be life-threatening."
