MP Menzies Visits The Western Distributor Road, Thanking Those Involved In The Project

Fylde MP Mark Menzies has been out and about to see how the Preston Western Distributor Road is coming along. He says it will be all ready in early July.

MP Menzies took the opportunity to express his thanks to the Leader of Lancashire County Council, Cllr. Phillippa Williamson, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, County Councillor Rupert Swarbrick, Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Growth, Aidy Riggott BV and the Leader of Fylde Council and all the workers and contractors at Costain Group for coming together to deliver this project on time and on budget.

He added that the road will unlock huge benefits for rural villages like Newton, Clifton and Freckleton, and promote economic growth and support for sites like BAE Systems and Westinghouse Springfields as well as, hopefully, reducing congestion in Wrea Green.

  1. It has been horrendous in St Annes the last few months with temporary lights on Queensway that makes travel in and out of St Annes a nightmare. When will this be completed? Nothing seems to be happening at the moment!

  2. Mr Menzies needs to address the ever growing problem of slow moving traffic through St Annes in both directions.
    Queensway has been a growing problem for years, but it is worse than ever at the moment with continuous roadworks causing huge queues for 20 mins plus from one side to the other – which normally takes about a 30-40 seconds!
    Furthermore, the Clifton Drive stretch alongside the Sandhills, from Squires Gate to St Anne’s Square is even worse at times! And there’s not even any roadworks causing the delay!
    I have frequently been stuck in slow moving traffic jams from the bridge at Squires Gate Lane, all the way to St Anne’s Square! At times its equally bad travelling towards Blackpool on this stretch.
    Also, Highbury Road, leading onto Clifton Drive frequently fills up with 30-40 cars trying to avoid Queensway.
    This is something that NEEDS to be addressed – its only going to get even worse.
    Mr Menzies – Take note.

  3. After all of these years waiting for the Moss road to be upgraded, it will not serve St Annes and half of Lytham will still find it more convenient to use Ballam and Peel road. Why there is no St Annes spur road at Queensway is beyond me!
