Clwyd South AM to push for swift action over Llangollen parking

Assembly Member Ken Skates has vowed to continue to push for parking restrictions at a troublesome spot on the A5 in Llangollen.

Clwyd South AM Mr Skates has been working to get the Welsh Government to introduce double yellow lines to stop dangerous parking opposite Stans of Llangollen on Berwyn Street.

Mr Skates, who is based in Llangollen, said parked cars were causing a major obstruction for pedestrians – particularly elderly residents – trying to cross the road safely to access the shop and post office inside.

He added: “The Welsh Government’s Transport Minister Edwina Hart appreciates my concerns over this issue, and has instructed officials to ensure funding is considered for the necessary work in the next financial year.

“I’m hopeful it will be signed off and carried out as soon as possible, and will continue to press for a speedy resolution to what is becoming an increasing problem for many of my constituents.”
