Update on Lancashire roads affected by flooding

Monday, December 07, 2015

Lancashire County Council is urging people to stay safe and take notice of road closures which are in place due to flooding.

A number of roads are closed due to flooding in recent days. Others which had been closed have now reopened and some are passable with care.

Lancaster is one of the main places affected by flooding and drivers are asked to be cautious as there are ongoing problems with traffic lights. However, Skerton Bridge and the Greyhound Bridge have now both reopened, following work to remove flood debris.

Elsewhere in Lancaster district, the A683 is now open after being closed near Melling. The Loyn Bridge at Gressingham is closed, preventing travel through Gressingham between the B6254 Carnforth Road and the A683. Temporary traffic lights are in place on Low Road at the Crook O' Lune due to debris on the road from the collapse of a wall. The B6480 Wennington to Bentham Road which was closed last weekend, will remain closed until at least the spring due to the major landslide. Bottomdale Road between Kellet Lane and Slyne and Barley Cop Lane at Folly Lane is still closed.

In Wyre, a number of roads near St Michaels are closed and the village is inaccessible using the A586 from the west. The village can be accessed from the east using the stretch of the A586 which comes from the A6 at Kirkland. St Michaels Lane/Hall Lane is closed between the A6 at Bilsborrow and St Michaels. Rawcliffe Road is also closed between St Michaels and Hambleton. Not related to the flooding, Park Lane is also closed at Cabus due to a bridge being struck over the weekend.

In Fylde, Moorside at Treales is also closed.

In Preston, Woods Lane at Inskip from Woods Fold to Inskip is also closed due to flooding.
