Progress report

Work to increase the size of the roundabout, and widen the approaches to the junction is ongoing. So far, we’ve completed most of the main construction work on phase 1 and 2 (click on link to newsletter for more information). Due to unforeseen circumstances, including the recent severe weather, we’ve had to reschedule the remaining phases of work.

You can also find out more in our February 2020 update newsletter.

Come and talk to us

Every Friday a member of the team will available at Thornton Methodist Church, 60 Victoria Road, Thornton-Cleveleys, FY5 5HQ from 10am to 12noon. Please visit us if you have any concerns about the scheme.

What's next?

We’re currently undertaking work on Norcross Lane (phase 3). During these works, a 24-hour closure of Norcross Lane will be in place. In addition to this, overnight closures are also required to the junctions of Fleetwood Road South (both approaches).

The A585 Amounderness Way will remain open at all times, however temporary traffic lights are required until the end of the scheme. The traffic lights will only be used between 8pm and 6am.

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
