Full traffic light signals around the Broughton roundabout are due to be given the nod later this month.Advertisement
Lancashire County Council has put forward its proposal for the key junction in the North of Preston.
The man in charge of highways and transport, County councillor Tim Ashton, is due to make a decision by Friday 26 April.
A notice by the council states: “Approval for the scheme and commencement of construction of full signalisation of the roundabout and the introduction of a left turn lane north of the roundabout.
“The scheme also includes provision of toucan crossings on the M55 slip roads west of the roundabout. The scheme will also include upgrading the existing puffin crossing on the A6 near Parklands to a toucan crossing.”
Plans to improve the Broughton roundabout are one of the first steps in the county council’s transport masterplan.
This includes completion of the Penwortham bypass, a Broughton bypass on the A6 and potentially a new bridge over the River Ribble.
