As the south ramp, at the Guild Hall end of the grade-II listed building, re-opens – another one shuts.

Lancashire County Council says work has been completed on renovating the south ramp and it will be back open to vehicles on Monday (24 July) from 6am.

However, work now starts on revamping the northern ramp – accessed via North Road.

Work to repair and re-tile the northern end of the Bus Station is also taking place at the same time.
