More roadworks are taking place in New Hall Lane as the latest stage of the revamp of the major route into Preston continues.

Two junctions on the road are to see new crossings put in at traffic light junctions.

Six months of disruption is expected on the A59 as Lancashire County Council spend more than £1m on the road which is regularly dubbed an ‘eyesore’.

The junctions are Skeffington Road/Scotforth Road and then Acregate/Arnhem Road.

Funding for the work is coming from the Preston and South Ribble City Deal, a £434m investment in new roads and homes across the city and wider area.

Project manager for the City Deal Phill Wilson said: “This is the latest stage of the work along New Hall Lane, which will improve the area for shoppers, businesses and local residents.

“Vehicles will still be access these roads during the work on the crossings, which will involve brand new traffic lights and paving.

“We understand that this could cause some delay or disruption at times for people travelling along New Hall Lane, and we apologise for any inconvenience caused by this improvement work.”
