Llangollen 2020

Work on the Llangollen 2020 project was completed in May 2022.

Denbighshire County Council, in partnership with Welsh Government and Transport for Wales, is making improvements to Castle Street, Llangollen.

This scheme has been developed through extensive consultation with the local community and local county councillors. It includes: 

  • wider footways
  • improved and safer junctions
  • new traffic signals and a pedestrian crossing
  • new one-way systems
  • resurfacing works

There will be some road closures and temporary traffic lights but we will work closely with local residents and businesses to listen to any concerns and minimise disruption.

The works should be completed by Spring 2022. Each week we will update this page with the details of what we've done and what we plan on doing.

If you want to contact us, please email Llangollen2020@denbighshire.gov.uk.
