OBR Construction wins Denbighshire Levelling Up contract

Llangollen’s four great highways are to be spruced up with enhanced public realm, new signage, and improved accessibility.

OBR Construction has been appointed to deliver the scheme, which is part of Denbighshire County Council’s successful £3.8m bid to the government’s Levelling Up Fund. OBR recently completed another of the county council’s Levelling Up Fund projects – improving the accessibility of Wenffrwd Nature Reserve by adding paths.

The improvement to the four great highways (Llangollen Canal, old Ruabon to Barmouth Railway Line, the River Dee, and the A5) is one of the county council’s final Levelling Up Fund projects.

In particular, the scheme looks to repair and reimagine Lower Dee Mill Park under designs by LUC.

OBR is set to begin work on 5 February, completing the project in June – provided the weather cooperates.

Cllr Barry Mellor, lead member for environment and transport with the county council, described the four great highways scheme as “a vital project” for the area.

“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,” Mellor said. “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,” he continued.

“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.”
