Lancashire County Council has given an update on the roadworks currently taking place around the Preston Bus Station area.

A spokesman for the county council said: “Tithebarn Street has closed permanently between the junctions with Lord Street and Lords Walk, near the glass walkway from the car park to the Guild Hall, as part of the multi-million pound redevelopment of the bus station.

“The aim is to improve access to and from the bus station. Several trees have been planted and a new paved area has been put in. A new crossing was recently put in at the Lords Walk junction to help people to cross, especially the students from Cardinal Newman College.”

The spokesman continued: “The junction of Tithebarn Street and Lord Street will reopen shortly following improvement work. It’s scheduled to reopen in the next week or two. This work was delayed due to the bad weather earlier this year.

“Once it reopens, drivers will temporarily only be able to turn right onto Lancaster Road, while further improvement work takes place further along Lancaster Road.”
