Contractors DUO have moved on to the site to build a compound and a sign indicating the start of work has been erected as work to construct the £27m stretch of road between Peel and Ansdell commences. This long awaited road will replace the old Moss Road which closed in 2014 for safety reasons. The aim is to improve journeys for drivers from Lytham St. Anne’s to the motorway network.
Visiting the site, MP Mark Menzies said, ‘It has been ten years in the making – fighting for the money and dealing with the developers and the different funding bodies, but it has been well, well worth it to see DUO here on site. The compound is being built and the sign is up at the end of the road detailing the works and we can see the diggers and engineers finally on site. This is much more than just a road – this is a road which will help unlock the economic potential of St Anne’s and Lytham and I look forward to being able to drive along it.’
The road works are expected to take 30 months to complete.
