A585 Windy Harbour to Skippool
We’re proposing to build a new offline bypass around the village of Little Singleton, to reduce congestion, improve safety, reduce the impact of traffic on the local community and remove a major bottleneck on the main road to Fleetwood.
The A585 is the main road in and out of Fleetwood and surrounding areas. It's heavily congested between Windy Harbour and Skippool and drivers currently suffer from significant delays during peak periods. The road also has a poor safety record.
Congestion is particularly severe at the junction with the A586 at Little Singleton and the signalised junction with the A588 at Shard Road. A high number of accidents are reported at these junctions and the volume of traffic is also a concern for local people, pedestrians, equestrians and cyclists.
If we don’t make improvements to this three-mile section of road, it's likely there will be a rise in traffic levels and an increase in the number of accidents and delays to journey times.
We aim to improve:
- Reliability: by reducing congestion, especially around Little Singleton, Shard Road and Skippool junctions, which will improve journey times
- Socio-economic: by supporting the economic growth potential in both Wyre and Fylde and supporting planned residential developments in the local area
- Safety: by improving the safety of pedestrians, equestrians and cyclists around the existing A585
