Roadworks

We co-ordinate all roadworks carried out in Denbighshire, including works by gas, water, electricity and telephone companies.

We carry out a planned programme of work to maintain and improve Denbighshire’s roads. We give start and end dates for the work, but bear in mind that these may be subject to change due to bad weather or emergencies elsewhere.

We try to plan all roadworks well in advance, but this is not always possible because of emergencies that need urgent repairs.

Temporary road closures

We sometimes close roads temporarily for events such as parades and processions, cycling events, or other big events when the streets are likely to be crowded.  We also sometimes have to close roads so that roadworks can be carried out.
