M55 junction 3 roundabout

Theresa Morley

As part of the Government’s £220 million Congestion Relief Fund, improvement work is due to take place at the A585 Wesham Circle located above the M55 at junction 3.

To alleviate congestion, we plan to increase lane capacity for motorists travelling on the roundabout towards A585 Fleetwood Road northbound by creating a longer merge lane. The work will also include upgrading the traffic lights and surfacing to the roundabout.

For safety purposes, the majority of the work will be carried out under lane closures. A number of full closures are also required on the roundabout. The dates for the full closures are listed below.

  • Monday 16 September to Tuesday 17 September
  • Friday 20 September to Tuesday 24 September
  • Thursday 26 September to Friday 4 October

During the full closures, access onto the A585 Fleetwood Road from the M55 junction 3 will not be available and localised diversion routes will be in place.
