Roadworks will be in place in Pittman Way, off Eastway in Fulwood, for three months beginning January 7.

The roadworks off Eastway will be in place between Pittman Way and the junction with Oliver's Place in the North Preston Employment Area.

Signs are already in place warning drivers that the lengthy works will begin on Monday January 7 and are expected to be completed by Sunday March 31.

The work will widen a section of Eastway through Fulwood and introduce new street lighting and a toucan and puffin crossing ahead of the construction of a new Aldi store and Costa drive-thru later in the year.
