Road improvements at the junction of Powis Road with Tulketh Road and Egerton Road have been completed.

The three road junction in Ashton-on-Ribble, said be an accident black-spot, has had residents worried for some time about the lack of action taken by Lancashire County Council in coming up with a solution to a traffic problem.

Tulketh Councillor Elizabeth Atkins raised the issue with LCC and suggested a traffic calming island and said that inaction was putting residents at risk.

The road junction became something of a hot topic between the rival politcal parties, featuring in their local newsletters.


Local Cllr Mark Jewell mentioned: “When labour were in power they suggested an inadequate island at this junction. Some years ago I got this changed to be a defined built out junction.

“This will prevent cars whizzing up Tulketh Road and failing to slowdown as they head up Egerton Road or Powis Road. Cars will have to slow down to turn into these street just as with other normal junctions.”

The newly built out junction also includes a cycle lane.
