Drivers are being urged to allow extra time if using the Broughton roundabout at busy periods.Advertisement
As work continues on the new Broughton Bypass roadworks mean the direct filter lane to the M55 from the A6 coming towards the roundabout from Preston has been shut off.
The slip road can still be accessed but it means there’s a lane out in the A6 and during peak times queues are likely.
The Broughton Bypass is due to be finished by September this year and the City Deal have given an update on how it is progressing.
A new roundabout at Whittingham Lane is taking shape and a tarmac base layer has now been put down.
In the nothern section at the junction of Whittingham Lane to the A6 at Garstang Road the lighting columns and footpath are almost complete.

Work continues on the new Helms Farm underpass and the earthworks for the southern access are starting in the coming weeks.
To the south the work on the Brooklands Bridge at Blundel Brook is continuing.
The central island of the D’urton Lane roundabout is beginning to appear and the road is now accessible from the A6 although is still blocked off at the Eastway end.
