An online roadworks log says that the work is to “excavate large joint bay in footway to remove old link box and replace with new link box”.

A spokesperson for Electricity North West said: “Teams are currently carrying out repair work on the underground power network on Blackpool Road.

“Whilst work takes place, multi-way traffic lights are being used so engineers can work safely in the road. All work was agreed with the local council in advance and repairs are expected to be completed by the end of the week.”
