More road closures have been announced as part of the roadworks in Broughton.Advertisement
Following a section of Garstang Road being shut near the junction with Church Lane, a second section is to be closed for a month.
Lancashire County Council say the closure is needed to construct a ‘new gateway’ into the village to include a new granite paved section of road.
The section of Garstang Road just north of of the junction with James Towers Way will affect anyone heading into the village from 6am on Monday (10 September) to 5pm on Friday 12 October.

Cabinet member for highways and transport county councillor Keith Iddon said: “The improvement work is going well and we’re working hard to deliver it on time.
“The opening of James Towers Way has significantly reduced traffic through the centre of the village, and has reduced the overall impact of this improvement work on people’s journeys.
“No further road closures are planned for later this year. We’re doing what we can to keep inconvenience to a minimum during this work. Thank you to people for their patience while this work takes place.”
Another closure is also planned near the war memorial in Garstang Road from 6am on Monday 15 October to 5pm on Friday 2 November.
