A DENBIGHSHIRE Wetherspoon is calling on the county council to change its new one-way system which it claims has stopped delivery drivers from unloading outside the pub.

Plans in Ruthin mean Market Street is one-way away from St Peter’s Square, and Well Street is one-way in the direction of St Peter’s Square, but is said to be causing issues for deliveries and bin collections.

Despite works being nearly completed, a petition launched recently against the one-way system gathered more than 500 signatures from locals.

The latest to raise safety concerns are staff at the Castle Hotel pub, aka Ruthin's Wetherspoon, who claim delivery drivers are having to park further away and push deliveries uphill towards the pub.

Wetherspoon spokesman Eddie Gershon said: “As a result of the new one way system delivery drivers can no longer unload outside the pub and instead have to bring deliveries up a nearby hill, which is not the safest option.

“The one way system was undertaken without consultation and we would ask the council to review it in light of problems caused to the pub and other businesses.”

Mr Gershon added that Denbighshire County Council have been in touch with Wetherspoon and DHL (delivery company for Wetherspoon) saying they 'will work with both to make things easier'.
