Lancashire County Council teams will start public realm improvement works on New Year’s Day that will continue along the bypass route throughout 2018.

Two-way signals will initially be in place on Woodplumpton Lane between Garstang Road and Downing Court.

Two-way signals will also be in operation on Whittingham Lane from Garstang Road to Willow Tree Avenue.
