Essential work at The Harris is set to cause road disruption between Monday 29 April to Friday 10 May.

Preston City Council has announced that a section of Lancaster Road in Preston city centre will be closed temporarily but may reopen early if work is completed quicker than expected.

A map or the works shows that Earl Street will be open as usual but there will be no access to Church Street/Fishergate from Lancaster Road.
