    Scheme completion

    Our A585 Norcross roundabout scheme is now complete. In conjunction with the proposed A585 Skippool and Windy Harbour project, the improvements we’ve made will reduce congestion, support future development and accommodate predicted traffic growth. Pedestrians and cyclists can now benefit from the new controlled crossing facilities, making the junction safer.

    We understand the past 11 months have caused disruption. We’re certain that there are lessons we can learn. To help us improve our communications and the planning of future schemes, we would welcome your feedback. Please complete the feedback survey here.

    Thank you for your patience throughout the construction.

Project information

Overview

This scheme will entail increasing the size of the roundabout, widen the approaches to the junction and see the installation of new traffic lights. Safety will be further improved with the introduction of signal controlled pedestrian crossing points.

These improvements at Norcross roundabout, in conjunction with the proposed A585 Skippool and Windy Harbour project, will reduce congestion as well as supporting future developments and predicted traffic growth. This improvement scheme is part of the Government’s £220 million Congestion Relief Fund aimed at cutting congestion and journey times for motorists and improving safety.

 

We aim to:

  • support the delivery of the economic and housing strategies of the three local councils of Wyre, Fylde and Blackpool
  • alleviate congestion and improve customer journey time
  • improve safety and connectivity for pedestrians and cyclists
