One of the busiest roundabouts in Preston and South Ribble will be closed for resurfacing in the coming weeks.


Lancashire County Council are working on the Broad Oak roundabout on Golden Way (A582).

The work is needed as part of the construction of the Penwortham Bypass which will link in to the roundabout where Booths and the Brown Hare pub are.

The night time closures will take place between 7pm and 6am from Sunday 23 September to Friday 12 October.

Cabinet member for highways and transport county councillor Keith Iddon said: “This resurfacing is a major milestone in our improvement work at this junction, and shows that our overall work on the Penwortham Bypass is going well.

“The work at the roundabout so far has mainly focused on improving pedestrian facilities, creating more space for vehicles and widening approaches to the roundabout.

“We apologise in advance for any disruption that this work could cause to your journeys. We aim to lift the closures as soon as we can, once this resurfacing has been done.”

The resurfacing work will affected Golden Way in both directions from Cop Lane junctions to Pope Lane.

Diversion routes will be signed and no access will be possible onto Bank Top Road or Millbrook Way directly from the roundabout while work is taking place.
