A major road will see a series of closure as councils work to tackle litter.

The A483 from Halton Roundabout near Chirk to the Cheshire boundary will be closed as Wrexham County Borough Council are set to tackle litter dumped along the roadside, after a number of complaints on social media and in letters.

A series of planned lane closures are now effect along sections of the roadway to allow staff to clear the roadside.

The work is expected to finish on Tuesday, April 24.

A full list of the closures is available by calling Amberon’s 24-hour number on 0845 371 5050.

Councillor David A Bithell, lead member for Environment and Transport, said: “From April 9 litter collection will take place along the A483 from Halton Roundabout to the Cheshire boundary. We will also carry out litter collection alongside planned maintenance.

"While the work is taking place, we would also like to remind residents and visitors alike to not throw litter from their cars.

“I hope residents and visitors appreciate the costs incurred by councils when collecting litter, at a time of great financial pressures, and we ask members of the public to please dispose of their litter properly."

Further litter clearing will also take place in the future alongside maintenance work planned by the North and Mid Wales Trunk Road Agency.
