New Hall Lane, which enters the city from the East, will have temporary traffic lights installed.

Lancashire County Council is doing £1m of works on the road and is installing a new toucan crossing.

The crossing, outside St Matthew’s Church of England Primary School, needs a section of New Hall Lane to be one lane only from Tuesday 30 August.

Lights are to be between Derby Street and Delaware Street.

Parents and carers of children attending the nearby primary school are being warned to allow extra time for their journey as the school term resumes.

Highways manager for the county council Ridwan Musa said: “We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused while this work takes place.

“We’re aware that New Hall Lane is a very busy road and we’ll be putting measures in place to minimise disruption, particularly at peak times.

“However we ask people to bear with us and to allow more time to travel in this area while these safety improvements are carried out.”
