    Hi Kat,

    We found oursleves accidentally driving along this whilst we tried to find Cheshire Oaks, I was very impressed by its scale.

    One thing I miss is the hill where the cars would driver up and over giving you that funny tummy feeling!

    I love the drive to Wales

    Kev, funny thing is I never even knew this was going on until I stumbled across it last night *shame on me* I dont recall seing it in the local papers either! The only whispers I got two weeks ago relaited to Peel and the fact that they were over here in private talks regarding development of an area they own.
    so, it was a supprise to read about this road link!

    I think there's provisions in this scheme to make things safer for cyclists too, which gets a big thumbs-up from me. I've crossed the A5117 a few times at the A540 roundabout, and had a few scary encounters with people who storm through, thinking they're still on the motorway, ignoring the whole idea of giving way to traffic on the roundabout.

    It's a bit of a bottleneck area for cyclists, with the popular Eureka café at Two Mills and the routes out to North Wales from Queensferry. I went through there yesterday and I was glad of all the roadworks, they slowed the traffic down (especially the HGV's) so it wasn't quite as dangerous as normal.

    Not forgetting, of course, Mel Vasey who was knocked off his bike and killed not far from there.
