Work is due to start to upgrade the roads around the £5 Million Common Edge Community Sports Village development. These road works are due to start Monday 6 February 2023 and are expected to be completed in May 2023. To ensure the work is completed as quickly as possible, working hours will be between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday to Friday and 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday.
All roads will remain open to help the flow of traffic in the area and keep it safe for all 3-way temporary traffic lights will be in place on Common Edge Road, Queensway and Division Lane East.
The Borough Boundary bus stops on Common Edge Road outside South Shore Cricket Club and Lytham St. Anne’s Garden Centre will also be temporarily suspended throughout the works.
Access to the Common Edge Community Sports Village will be improved to make it easier and safer for local residents and sporting clubs to use the new facilities, which are due to open later this year. The facilities will include new changing rooms and a spectator pavilion, a floodlit 3G pitch, a floodlit rugby pitch, a training area and 194 spaces of car parking.
Significant improvements will also be made to the Division Lane East junction to provide better access for road users and pedestrians.
Exactly what does “upgrading the roads” mean? It just seems like a universal term for traffic disruption.
