Preston roadworks update

Share this article

The news that the £32m Broughton Bypass is set to open in October was welcomed by commuters around Preston this week.

And drivers who have struggled through the roadworks on Blackpool Road (at the New Hall Lane junction), Tithebarn Street and London Road will be pleased to hear that these works have already been completed, according to Lancashire County Council.

Drivers in Preston will breathe a sigh of relief when the new bypass opens in October

Drivers in Preston will breathe a sigh of relief when the new bypass opens in October

But with more a further 17 roads in Preston set to be affected by new roadworks starting soon, it seems that drivers will need to be patient a little while longer.

Three-way lights are scheduled to be installed on Lightfoot Lane on Monday September 11 to allow for manhole cable work.

And work is due to be carried out between September 12 and 13 on Whittingham Lane by BT which will require two-way signals.

Temporary traffic lights are also set to be put in place on Wychnor by BT between September 11 and 12.

A spokessman for Lancashire County Council said: "Around £19m of planned maintenance to highways [in Lancashire] has already been agreed this year.

"We do much of this work during the better weather over the summer months, to take advantage of the roads being quieter when the schools are off to try to minimise disruption.

"Recent weeks have been a busy period for these roadworks and we hope people are now seeing the results with better road surfaces in many places.

"We're also looking forward to being able to open the new Broughton Bypass next month, and see the benefits that brings in terms of better journeys around the north of Preston."
