D’Urton Lane will permanently close to vehicles from the A6 on Tuesday, April 18. Access for vehicles will only be possible from Eastway, until the opening of the new bypass.

Whittingham Lane in Broughton will temporarily close between 9.30am and 3:30pm, from Monday, May 1 until Tuesday, May 9, for work on a new traffic island.

No through traffic will be allowed along Whittingham Lane during this closure.

A spokesperson for Lancashire County Council said: “These latest changes are important stages of the work to connect the new bypass with the existing road network.

“There will be a signed official diversion in place for Whittingham Lane, but we know that people will choose other alternative routes for their journeys, using smaller roads that they know.

“We’re working to keep the disruption from the construction to a minimum, and while some people will be disrupted by this work, we hope that people will bear with us while we complete this major new road.”
