Drilling work begins on Monday to test land along the route of the proposed Preston and Western Distributor road, which will link the north west of the city to the M55 motorway.

A drilling rig will start work to analyse the underground structure of the land and will continue for around five weeks. The tests are needed every 50 metres along the preferred route to determine the strength and condition of the ground to support the planned roads and bridges.
