Temporary traffic lights are being put in place to the north of Broughton on the A6.


As part of the Broughton Bypass works the lights are being put in place for a fortnight from Wednesday (10 May).

Lancashire County Council said the short notice was due to the ‘late availability of a utility company to carry out work’.

The work takes place at the site of the new roundabout, where the A6 to the north of Broughton connects to the A6.

A spokesman for the county council said: “We apologise for any delays that this work could cause. Please allow more time if you are travelling in this area.

“We are doing everything we can to minimise the disruption, but we know that this work will cause delays for people travelling through Broughton.

“This is an important stage of the project to connect the new road to the A6. Please bear with us while this work is carried out.”

The temporary traffic lights will be in place 24-hours a day in both directions.

Broughton Bypass is due to be completed in August this year – and is running five months behind schedule.
