Final overnight closures on a major roundabout on the outskirts of Preston are to take place.


The Tank roundabout where Flensburg Way and Penwortham Way meet has seen roadworks ongoing since September.

Lancashire County Council says it is now in the final stages of the works on the A582.

City Deal project manager Phill Wilson said: “This improvement work is part of City Deal, which is increasing capacity along this major route through South Ribble, helping people to travel around the area and increasing access to the motorway network and Preston city centre.

“We would advise people to allow more time to travel in this area, as they may be some minor delays during these closures.

“We apologise in advance for the disruption to traffic, as well as any inconvenience to local residents and businesses. We are doing everything we can to keep this to a minimum.

“This necessary work will help to improve journey times in the long term, and we are grateful for people’s patience while it is ongoing.”
