News: Works To Start On Moor Road

Friday, 18th June 2004
(PR 1414)

Road safety will receive a boost as part of a major highway improvement scheme on one of Chorley's main roads.

Work will start on Monday 21 June to resurface the B5251 Moor Road from Tootell Street to Butterworth Brow and new kerbs, gulley pots and white lines will also be installed.

A new Puffin crossing will also be installed to allow pedestrians to cross the busy road safely and bus stops are to be upgraded to Quality Bus standard.

Around £340,000 is to be spent on the scheme and work is expected to take 14 weeks. Engineers are hoping to keep congestion to a minimum and are stressing that the road will remain open throughout the project.

A county council spokesman said:

"We hope that road users will be patient while the work is done as the end result will mean a better road for everyone.

"It is inevitable that there will be some delays but we are hoping to keep these to a minimum by using stop/go boards at peak times. All work close to the junction with Wellbank Lane and Tootle Street will be done on Sundays to help minimise traffic disruption."
