Denbighshire County Council is pleased to announce that a contractor has been appointed to complete improvement works at Llangollen’s Four Great Highways.

The Levelling Up funded Four Great Highways project aims to enhance the landscape and improve accessibility, interpretation and signage in Llangollen.

The project is part of investment by the UK Government’s Levelling Up Fund that was secured through a joint application between Denbighshire County Council and Wrexham County Borough Council for the Clwyd South Constituency.

The contract for the work has been awarded to OBR Construction, who recently completed work for another Levelling Up funded project at Wenffrwd Nature Reserve.

The final designs for the projects have recently been slightly modified following feedback from stakeholders and members of the public and to ensure that the project remains within the allocated budget.

Work is due to start on site week commencing February 5, with the aim of being completed by the end of June 2024. However, this may be subject to change depending on weather conditions.

Cllr Barry Mellor, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “I am pleased to hear that a contractor has been appointed to undertake this vital project in Llangollen.

"We’re excited to be working with OBR Construction once again following the fantastic work they did in completing the construction of a path at Wenffrwd Nature Reserve. I have no doubt that they will do a great job on this project as well.

“We’re happy that the final designs for the project reflect public opinion that has been gathered by the Project Team over the past year. We are pleased to be able to share the new artist’s impressions with the public and I look forward to seeing these plans come into fruition and visiting the area once they are complete.”
