Four Months Of Major Roadworks & Traffic Management Between Blackpool and St Anne’s

Traffic delays are set to blight drivers travelling from St. Anne’s to Blackpool once again as traffic management systems will be situated at the junction of Clifton Drive North and Highbury Road from Monday 8th April. And from Tuesday, 23rd April until Thursday 1st August there will be temporary lights operating while  the junction of Clifton Drive North and Highbury Road West is upgraded. Lancashire County Council (LCC) say that is a consequence of work commencing on extending the cycle track on the west side of Clifton Drive North through to Todmorden Road.

A Spokesperson for LCC said: ‘We’re due to start work shortly to extend the cycle track linking Blackpool and St Anne’s to Todmorden Road thanks to further funding provided by Active Travel England.

There will be some traffic management beginning on Monday, April 8 to allow work to safely begin on the track by narrowing the existing road width, and from Tuesday, April 23 until August 1 there will be temporary lights operating while we upgrade the junction of Clifton Drive North and Highbury Road West.

This key part of the scheme will include installing new drainage, kerb-lines, ducting and signal equipment, as well as resurfacing the pavement and junction.

The temporary lights will operate on the same sequence as the existing signals, which will help to minimise delays while the work is ongoing. Once installed, the new signals will automatically adjust to traffic levels and ensure the junction operates as efficiently as possible.

The safe and low-traffic cycle routes on the Fylde coast already make this a popular place for people to ride their bikes, and we’re grateful for people’s patience while we complete this link between existing cycle routes.’
