Map: The most congested roads in N. Wales

Is Chester Road West, between Shotton and Queensferry, the worst for congestion?

You know the one; the hold-ups start at Asda, continue at a snail's pace by the fire station and leisure centre, up to the vets and the lights, then under the railway bridge and into Shotton [I could give you every twist and turn in the road but feel the painful point has been made].

Anyway, there has been no scientific study behind the claim that this is, indeed, the worst in area but that's the feeling of locals, says the Evening Leader.

So it begs the congestion, is this the worst are there other contenders? I've used a google map to start highlighting some hotspots to be going on with and you can add more:

Try getting off Plas Coch retail park, Wrexham. Sometimes it can take half an hour if you time it wrong [when Wrexham FC are at home, during busy shopping times and after a busy cinema screening finishes]

But then again there's the bottle-neck at the top of Aston Hill at the start of the A55 during the holiday season and further along at Rhuallt Hill.

Have you got any others?
