It is due to be replaced by the council within the next few weeks.

Euxton Councillor and Buckshaw Village resident Aidy Riggott said: “When I was contacted about this in late June by some of the businesses based on Barnes Wallis Way, it was clear to me that it was an obvious and understandable oversight and I immediately contacted Chorley Council to arrange for this to be corrected.

“I am pleased that this has been agreed and that the correct signage will be in place in the coming weeks.”
