Morrisons supermarket goes ahead after access row

A new Morrisons supermarket in Wrexham is going ahead following the resolution of road access arrangements.

Behind-the-scenes negotiations have been taking place between the council and the Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust.

The supermarket, which could create around 350 jobs, is to be built on the site of the former Wrexham Council highways depot off Ruthin Road.

Wrexham ambulance station is next to the site.

The supermarket's construction had been put on hold because of ambulance chiefs' concerns that increased traffic would impact on their ability to respond to emergencies.

Revised plans for the store have since been approved and building is under way.

It is expected to take eight months to complete.
