Fylde Road, from its junction with Aqueduct Street, through to where it meets the Adelphi roundabout was closed off.

Lancashire County Council carried out major resurfacing works.

It led to queues at the Adelphi roundabout as traffic was forced to find alternative routes around the closure – using Aqueduct Street and Marsh Lane.

The work had been due to take place during June and July but was put back due to bad weather.
