Overnight closures later this month for Broughton Bypass work

Monday, August 07, 2017

Lancashire County Council has announced the latest overnight closures as part of work on the Broughton Bypass, close to the M55 junction.

The A6 will be closed between the roundabout at junction one of the M55 and Church Lane, from Monday 21 August to Friday 25 August.

The road will be closed in both directions between 9pm and 5am, to install detectors for the traffic signals.

Graeme Leathard, project manager for the county council, said: "The overnight closures are part of the latest stage of construction for the new bypass, including work to install the traffic signals.

"We apologise for any inconvenience caused to people's journeys. We only close roads when it is necessary to carry out work on the carriageway itself.

"This is yet another stage in the work to complete this important road, which will significantly reduce congestion once it opens."

A signed diversionary route will be in operation during the closures, via the A6 Garstang Road, Eastway, Lightfoot Lane, Tom Benson Way, Tag Lane, Tabley Lane, Woodplumpton Road, Newsham Hall Lane and Woodplumpton Lane.
