Progress report

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.

Why we need this scheme

The A585 Norcross roundabout scheme supports a much wider strategy to resolve congestion in the area and improve the experience for our customers using the network. The scheme will also benefit pedestrians and cyclists who will be able to use new controlled crossing facilities to navigate their way around the junction.

Aims

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
