Emergency roadworks are in place in Preston due to a severe road collapse.


The repairs are taking place on the junction of Ring Way and North Road in the city centre.

This is causing heavy congestion in the city centre, as well as long delays to bus services operating on the routes.

There is currently no timescale in place for how long the repair work will take.

A statement issued by Preston Bus said: “We have been informed by LCC’s Highways Operations Engineering / Community Services team that Emergency Road Works are taking place on the Ring Way junction with North Road in Preston, due to a severe road collapse.

“Traffic is already building up and all services crossing the city and Ring Way are likely to be adversely affected, especially at peak times. We have no notification of how long the works are likely to take. If you are driving it would be prudent to avoid the area.

“Apologies for the disruption to services, but circumstances are beyond our control.”
