There is currently no right-turn for vehicles coming from Penwortham, while the new layout is created. A locally-signed diversion is in place.

A spokesperson for Lancashire County Council, said: “We are sorry for the inconvenience that will be caused to people’s journeys while this work is carried out.

“The work on the new layout has affected the timing of the traffic signals causing increased queuing at times.

“We have taken measures to reduce disruption, so we’ve had to stop people from turning right.

“It will be brought back as soon as we can, once we’ve finished the alterations to this junction.”
