Fresh calls have been made to urgently address a "death trap" road rather than let reports on its repair "gather dust".

Rhuddlan's cllr Arwel Roberts has enlisted the aid of Llyr Huws Gruffydd AM and the Welsh Assembly Government (WAG) to call upon Denbighshire County Council (DCC) to overhaul the foundations of the A547 between Rhuddlan and Abergele, also known as the Abergele Straits.

Ll?r Huws Gruffydd AM said: “It is surprising that options for improvements have been made by Denbighshire County Council and the Welsh Government now have that report collecting dust on an office shelf in Cardiff.

“I will be urging the WAG to return to the original report, and put together an action plan so the people of north Wales remain as safe as possible whilst they travel on this road.”

These renewed calls come after cllr Roberts raised the issue At DCC's full council meeting in February, he raised questions again regarding improvements and in-depth options for raising the standard of the A547.

Cllr Roberts said: “I have seen numerous collisions on the road over the years, and we are all aware of some deaths that have occurred on this road in the past due to road traffic collisions, hence the local name of "death trap".

Cllr Roberts added: “Denbighshire County Council patch potholes and cracks on the road, but I’m afraid the whole road infrastructure needs redoing because people’s safety is bought into question on this sub-standard road.

DCC has been approached for comment.
