Progress report

The preliminary work, which prepares the site for the main construction work is almost finished. We have removed the roundabout and traffic islands, installed a new drainage system and started work to divert electrical and communication cables.

You can also find out more in our August 2019 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?

From 31 August 2019, we plan to start the main construction work. The first phase of work currently taking place on Fleetwood Road South on the southern part of the roundabout is now due to finish on the 18 October 2019. Once this is complete, the road closure will be removed at this location.

The second phase of work will start as planned on the 21 October 2019 on Fleetwood Road South on the northern part of the roundabout. We aim to have this phase completed by 13 December 2019. For safety purposes, a 24 hour road closure will be in place. For more information on diversion routes, please see below.

Please note that some bus services in the area will be affected. To minimise disruption, we’ve worked in partnership with Blackpool Transport and will put the following measures in place:

  • a dedicated bus shuttle service on Fleetwood Road South – access to the shuttle service will be available from existing bus stops and will provide a service to other bus routes
  • additional buses will be available on the number 14 bus route
  • additional school buses have also been provided

A new revised timetable will be displayed at bus stops and for more information please visit the Blackpool Transport website

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
