Bolton Rd and Lea Gate improvement work 

Town Hall
A £485,000 scheme to improve roads in Bradshaw and Harwood will start on Saturday (July 22) and motorists are being warned to expect delays.
Bolton Road, Bradshaw, will be resurfaced from Maple Street to Lea Gate’s junction with Tottington Road, Harwood.
As part of the scheme, Bradshaw Road will also be resurfaced between Bolton Road and The Coppice.
While work is underway it will be necessary to temporarily close sections of the road at weekends, and the following restrictions will be in place:-
• Tottington Road will be closed between Back Longsight North and Lea Gate on July 22, 23, 29 and 30.
• Bolton Road and Lea Gate will be closed from Bradshaw Road to Tottington Road on August 5, 6, 12, and 13.
• Bradshaw Road will be shut from between Bolton Road and The Coppice on August 19, 20, 26 and 27.
Diversions will be signposted. During other times the roads will remain open, however temporary traffic signals may be in use and motorists are being warned to expect delays.
Bolton Council’s Executive Cabinet Member for Highways, Cllr David Chadwick, said: “We understand that this is going to cause disruption but this work is really needed to improve the condition of these major roads.
“We have timed the closures to take place on weekends and also over the school holidays, as we appreciate the impact it will have.
“We would really like to thank motorists, businesses and residents for their patience while work is underway.”
The work is expected to finish by the end of August, subject to weather conditions.
Access to residents and businesses will be maintained while work is underway.
