A regeneration project in the Mold Road area of Wrexham has taken a step forward with an agreement reached to sell parcels of land to the Welsh Government.

Glyndwr University, Wrexham Council and the Welsh Government have partnered to take forward the Wrexham Gateway project.

The project will see a new bus-rail interchange built near Wrexham General station and a 5,000 all-seater upgrade of the Racecourse Ground’s terraced Kop Stand to enable it to host international events.

Economy & Transport Minister, Ken Skates (Lab, Clwyd South) said: “It shows our commitment to drive the redevelopment of this part of Mold Road forward. We are demonstrating our determination to maintain momentum, even through the Coronavirus crisis, by securing these two essential sites.”
