A major route into Preston is due to be closed for resurfacing work.Advertisement
Parts of Chain House Lane near Penwortham are to be shut during a two week period at the end of October.
Work on the A582 at Penwortham has been ongoing for a number of months, with £8 million being pumped into the major artery into the city.
From Tuesday 21 October to Friday 24 October the west section of the road is to be closed towards New Longton to allow the western side of the A582 to be resurfaced. Diversions will be in place via Pope Lane.
From Monday 27 October to Friday 31 October the eastern section of the road is to be shut. An alternative route is to be put in place via Flensburg Way, Croston Road and Church Lane.
Phill Wilson, Lancashire County Council highways project manager, said: “We’re sorry for the disruption to people’s journeys while we do this vital work, but the benefits in terms of reduced congestion will be felt immediately once it’s finished.
“We’ve been grateful for people’s patience since we got started in May and will be doing our best to keep disruption to a minimum while we finish this first phase of improvements to the A582.”
The work is due to widen the junction and upgrade the traffic lights.
A toucan crossing is also being added to make it easier for cyclists to cross alongside pedestrians.
Further resurfacing work is planned from Monday 3 November to Tuesday 4 November, will see temporary traffic lights on Penwortham Way.
