wayfarer closed ?

taken from bofa4x4.co.uk



The road known to many at “the Wayfarer” North Wales has a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) placed on it and is closed from 16-11-09 until further notice. This covers from SJ 12965 35532 to SJ 09185 36582. The reason for the TRO is due to water erosion and to allow for the Highways Dept to carry out the repair work. The TRO will last till the repairs are done.
The only boundry is your imagination.

Might also have been inundated since TOR ran a feature on it in the last months issue...
That combined with the bad weather, and the place will get trashed real quick...

The hole appeared last week over just one night, it was just down to the amount of water, there where reports of a LR stuck in it, but as said the hole was already there, today it seems its got bigger and Wrexham CC has said they will do the repair hence the TRO.

It is hoped it will be repaired before Christmas and CRAG have offered their help in the repair, apparently Wrexham CC are very good with lane management so its just a matter of time.

I got this info from Paul Humphreys CRAG Chairman and Regional Team Leader.

Some good news, its open.

Taken from Hoodoo on CRAG.

All things being equal, repairs on the Wayfarer will be effected on Wednesday 23rd. These will be of a relatively temporary nature to get it back into use before Christmas - any permanent repairs required will be done in the New Year.
Should be open for use from Thursday onwards.
Pray that they have decent weather for the work!

Things are looking good, the delay in the repairs was understandably due to the bad weather, then the pothole situation in the county had to be tackled caused by the weather.

There are some drainage works being carried out by the council in Llanarmon and they are going to incorporate the lane repair into those works.
The time scale given was to start work next week but it should be finished within two to three weeks max.

Watch this space we may have a little trip on the go. :wink:

Any organising will be in another thread so please stay on topic 8)
