The Welsh Government has today (Monday, 10 September) launched a consultation on proposals following a review last year based on concerns raised by traders and residents.

Revisions to the existing network being consulted on are:

  • The possibility of reducing Broad Street to single lane from The Cross to the ‘High Street’ outside the town hall. 
  • The installation of a ‘Zebra’ controlled crossing on Broad Street near the town hall
  • Improvements to make Brook Street two-way between Church Street and Jehu Road which would require alterations to A458 signage at Sarn-y-Bryn Caled roundabout and Flash junction.
The consultation begins today and lasts until Monday, 3 December.

Transport Secretary Ken Skates said: 

“Businesses and residents have previously expressed their concerns over pedestrian safety, driver behaviour and parking issues in Welshpool town centre.

“This consultation provides an excellent opportunity for people to share their opinion on the proposed options aimed at improving traffic flow and safety.

“These views will form an important part of the decision process and I would encourage everyone with an interest to contribute to this consultation.”

A one day drop-in session will be held on 14 September and 30 October at Welshpool Town Hall between 10am and 7pm.  

The consultation documents and plans will also be available for viewing during opening hours at Welshpool Town Council offices and the Tourist Information Centre for the full 12 weeks.

Further details of the proposals and how to share your views can be found on the A458 Welshpool town centre one way system consultation webpage.
