Flensburg Way, Farington, towards Longmeanygate from the 'Tank' Roundabout

Work is well underway to improve the junction at Flensburg Way and Penwortham Way- also known as the ‘Tank roundabout’.

Improvement work has mostly taken place so far on the eastern side of the roundabout. The next stage of the work involves the completion of the carriageway construction and surfacing work on Flensburg Way, between the roundabout and Longmeanygate.

To carry out this work safely and effectively, daytime and night time temporary road closures will be put in place.
