The Blackpool Council have today shared that High Street, Talbot Street and Dickson Road are to be closed for 6-8 weeks to allow for the safe demolition of the Wilko building and car park.

Diversions and temporary footpaths will be in place during this two month period.

This road closure will allow for the redevelopment of the Talbot Gateway. The development will include a Holiday Inn, restaurant, retail, transport hub and terminus.
