A ROAD closure has been put in place at Queen’s Street, Rhyl to prepare for building works.
Residents and motorists in Rhyl are being informed about a road closure at Queen Street, Rhyl. Denbighshire County Council has purchased properties in Queen Street, with a view to redeveloping the site as part of its wider plans to regenerate the town centre.
As an initial structural survey carried out by structural engineers has raised concerns over the condition of some elements of the building, it has been decided to accelerate the redevelopment works, which unfortunately will result in the road closure.
Fencing has been put in place across a part of the street, although there will be a footpath to allow pedestrian access.
A spokesperson for Denbighshire County Council said: “Following the closure of Queen Street at the end of last week, work is now starting on installing scaffolding on the development site and this should be complete by the end of the month. The road will then to be re-opened to traffic.
“Most of this block had been vacant for over 25 years and the proposed development involves the provision of new retail units at ground floor level and eight apartments on the upper floors. This will bring activity back to this part of the town centre and will complement the other developments currently taking place on the resort’s seafront.”
Businesses on the street will remain open as usual and representatives of the Council are visiting them to discuss alternative arrangements for deliveries.
Motorists using the one way system on Queen Street to reach the promenade will be diverted and signs will be in place.
The Council would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and to thank people in advance for their co-operation.
