I THINK several things should be clarified.
Unless you are a resident of St Asaph, it is impossible to appreciate the danger to the many children walking to and from school and for any pedestrian walking in the High Street.
The removal of parking spaces could mean the death of several business and also give the traffic the opportunity to travel faster and cause even further dangers.
Unfortunately it is impossible to please everyone, and while I try to be the voice of the residents of St Asaph, where there are two distinct views, that is impossible.
A Relief Road is the only solution for St Asaph's problems and would also be of immense benefit to the whole of the Vale of Clwyd.
Over 5,000 signatures were obtained for a petition asking for a Relief Road and while talking to residents, their main concern was that of children's safety in the High Street, walking to and from the local schools.
Therefore it is hoped to use the B5381 as an advisory route for HGV's for a trial period of 12 months and to review it after that when there are more facts.
I personally think Denbighshire County Council should have made the decision, and not passed it onto St Asaph Town Council.
So let us try the change for 12 months and then review the situation, and in the meantime, continue to push for a much needed Relief Road.
