A road in Deepdale is being closed off ahead of Preston North End’s clash with Blackburn Rovers.Advertisement
Preston Police say due to strike action on Northern trains they are expecting a higher number of coaches and cars for the Championship clash at Deepdale.
Lowthorpe Road is to see limited access on Saturday (24 November) from its junction with Blackpool Road and St Gregory’s Crescent from 1pm to 6pm. Bill Shankley Crescent will also be affected.
Sergeant Paul McLernon said: “I hope that these arrangements do not affect access to your property unduly.
“However I would ask that careful consideration is given to travel arrangements to and from your property within the affected times.
“We understand the inconvenience that this causes to residents and are making enquiries to find a more suitable location for coaches to park. We will of course make every effort to open the road as quickly as possible once it is safe to do so.”
