A COUNCIL is planning to improve the safety of a single carriageway that links a town and village.

Motorists have been asked to share their views of Denbigh Lower Road between St Asaph and Trefnant.

A number of crashes occurred on the road, known informally as the 'S-bends', at the end of last year.

Denbighshire County Council will host a drop-in session in August to hear the experiences and concerns of nearby residents and regular users of the road.

Cllr Mark Young, cabinet member for safer communities, said that most of the complaints about speeding he receives are related to Lower Denbigh Road. He said: "There is a lot of speeding in Denbighshire but there have been a number of collisions on this road, particularly involving young people. Profiles of speeding in the county often involve young people.

"Road improvements can be made but education is very important. I would like the council to work closely with North Wales Police to engage with nearby communities to raise awareness of the dangers of speeding. Even a safe driver can be involved in a crash with someone who over the speed limit.

"The drop-in session is all about making people safer. I would urge residents to come forward with their views for a grown up chat about what is a sensitive issue."

Cllr Peter Scott, mayor of St Asaph, added: "A review of Lower Denbigh Road has been on the cards for a long time. There is a lot of traffic on the road and it was made the preferred route for wagons but it can be very narrow for them. I am glad that the council is carrying out safety checks."

The drop-in session takes place at Denbighshire County Council's Caledfryn office in Denbigh from 12pm-6pm on August 14.
