Temporary closures planned for Broughton improvement work

Monday, September 03, 2018

Lancashire County Council will need to temporarily close parts of Garstang Road in Broughton, as part of ongoing improvement work.

Garstang Road will be closed just north of the junction with James Towers Way, for vehicles heading towards the village centre, from 6am on Monday 10 September to 5pm on Friday 12 October.

The closure will be to the south of the junction with Church Lane.

People travelling along Garstang Road towards the M55 junction and Preston will still be able to use this section.

This closure is needed to construct a new 'gateway', including a new granite paved section of road.

Garstang Road will be closed around the war memorial from 6am on Monday 15 October to 5pm on Friday 2 November, in both directions. This will include new paving in front of both war memorials.

County Councillor Keith Iddon, Cabinet member for highways and transport, said: "The improvement work is going well and we're working hard to deliver it on time.

"The opening of James Towers Way has significantly reduced traffic through the centre of the village, and has reduced the overall impact of this improvement work on people's journeys.

"No further road closures are planned for later this year. We're doing what we can to keep inconvenience to a minimum during this work. Thank you to people for their patience while this work takes place."

Diversions will be in place via James Towers Way.
