Flensburg Way, the B5253, is to see sections of it shut as work on the Tank roundabout – where Penwortham Way meets it.

Work is taking place on the roundabout as part of creating a dual carriageway between the M65 junction and Preston city centre.

Diversions are being put in place to try and reduce delays at the roundabout while the work takes place.

City Deal project manager Phill Wilson said: “We apologise in advance for the disruption to traffic, as well as any inconvenience to local residents and businesses. We are doing everything we can to keep this to a minimum.

“Please allow more time to travel in this area, while this work is carried out. These road closures may be lifted for short periods of time, depending on the schedule and progress of the work.

“We have tried to minimise the impact as far as possible by carrying out the work during the school holidays when there is less peak time traffic. We’ll also be making adjustments to the timings of other nearby traffic lights to help with traffic levels.

“This necessary work will help to improve journey times in the long term, and we are grateful for your patience during this work.”
