Lancashire County Council said they have been working on the pedestrian crossing in Brockholes Brow.

Drivers have reported the temporary two-way lights were not working during Tuesday (30 January) and Wednesday (31 January) sparking tailbacks.

The county council said the temporary lights – near the Shell garage – were now working and warned drivers the temporary facility would not be operating as efficiently as the normal crossing.

A spokesman for the county council said: We are carrying out repairs to the pedestrian crossing on Brockholes Brow, and so that people can continue to cross in this busy location, have put in place a temporary pedestrian crossing facility. We check these temporary lights daily in case of any problems.

“Because this is such a busy road, work has been taking place only during the quieter period at weekends to install new cabling, and this stage of the work is now complete. We’re planning to complete the installation of the pedestrian crossing by Friday 9 February.”

In December average speed cameras went live in Brockholes Brow, running from the Tickled Trout up to where it becomes New Hall Lane.
