PRESTATYN. PETTY SESSIONS. TUESDAY.—Before Mr. W. Wynne (in the Chair), Captain Keatinge, and Mr. J. Y. Strachan. TEMPORARY AUTHORITY was granted to Mrs. Williams, widow of the late tenant of the Railway Inn, Ffynnongroew, recently deceased, to sell at that public house, I pending the transfer of the license. THE NEW BRIDGE.-CERTIFICATE OF ADOPTION GRANTED. Mr. J. Walter Jones, barrister (instructed by Mr. Hinton, from the office of Mr. Mason, Solicitor to the London and North Western Railway Company), applied for a certificate to enable the Railway Company to close the pre- sent level crossing at Prestatyn Station, and to declare the approaches to the new bridge erec- ted in lieu of the crossing a road repairable by j the public. Mr. Robert Davies (Chairman), Dr. Town- shend, Messrs. Goronwy Jones, John Pritchard, John Hughes (Clerk), and Richard E. Hughes (Surveyor), were present on behalf of the Urban District Council. Mr. Walter Jones said that an application made some twelve months ago had been with- drawn, on account of certain objections by the District Council. Now the causes of those com- plaint had been removed, and a new footbridge had been erected for the convenience of the public close to the level crossing as well as the carriage bridge. Mr. Dawson, the Engineer of the Railway Company, said the bridge had been constructed in accordance with the deposited plans, and the approaches would be maintained by the Com- pany for 12 months from the date of the grant- ing of the certificates. Indeed, the Company had gone further than their powers to meet the wishes of the Council. But they could not un- dertake to light the bridge. They would, how- ever, make a present of four lamps and posts to the Council. Dr. Townshend remarked that they were not there in opposition to the Railway Company, but he was instructed to ask a few questions. Mr. Dawson, in reply to the Doctor, said the Company would supply pipe drains to carry off surface water from the bridge approaches. When the railway was widened, the footbridge would be extended. With regard to tiling the footways on the bridge, he could not undertake to do the work. The Company looked upon that in the nature of a local improvement, and they, as ratepayers, would possibly pay the largest share of doing the work, when it came to be done. Mr. R. Davies (replying to the Bench), said the Urban District Council seemed to be satis- fied with the work, with the concessions made that day. The Magistrates then visited the level cros- sing, and walked over the bridge, and on their return to Court granted the certificate applied for. Immediately afterwards the railway authori- ties locked the gates on the level crossing, and in future all vehicular traffic will have to be carried over the new bridge.
