Work is continuing on submitting the final proposals for a major new road in Preston.


The Penwortham Bypass is due to ease congestion on the A59 Liverpool Road through the town.

Costing £17.5million the road will go through fields from a junction on the A59 to the Broad Oak roundabout.

It’s part of the City Deal, a £430m project to fund new roads and homes in Preston and South Ribble, and is key to allowing the Cuerden development to go ahead.

Lancashire County Council says it is hoping to submit plans for the bypass by the end of this year.

A spokesman said: “A planning application is expected to be submitted towards the end of this year.

“There’s not much else to update on it, the team are still working on the final details, application etc.”

The route for the bypass has been amended many times over the years as previous plans were redrawn, or never submitted.
