Major transport schemes

Why we are building new roads

Lancashire's transport network is becoming increasingly congested, despite the introduction of a range of improvements and sustainable travel measures.

With more development planned to meet Lancashire's housing and employment needs and build on its strong economic performance, we cannot simply rely on making improvements to the existing network. Even with a much greater investment in public transport, cycling and walking, our current roads will not be able to cope.

We have published a series of Highways and Transport Masterplans to explore the options available to us.
