A city centre road is to be closed for two weekends as part of the Fishergate roadworks project.


The top 20 metres of Mount Street, where it joins Fishergate, will be shut to all vehicles on Friday 9 May from 7pm until 6am on Monday 12 May.

A second closure takes place from 7pm on Friday 16 May until Monday 19 May.

Lancashire County Council said Garden Street is to allow traffic in both directions during these periods.

All pay and display parking on Garden Street and Mount Street is suspended during the weekend periods above.

The road closures are part of the £3.4 million Fishergate project to make the main shopping street in Preston a better environment for pedestrians.

Paul Dunne, public realm manager for Preston and South Ribble, said: “We appreciate that this work will cause a degree of disruption but have been talking with local businesses to avoid major issues.

“We are moving closer to completion of the project and we are confident that when it is finished this summer the scheme will be hugely beneficial to the whole of Preston and the surrounding area.”
