Work is due to start on resurfacing a major road in Bolton.
The work will take place on Halliwell Road, between its junction with Blackburn Road and Moss Bank Way, from Monday, July 23 for approximately five weeks.
Most of the work will take place during weekdays and while the road will remain open, temporary traffic lights will be in operation in order to control the flow of traffic.
This will inevitably cause some delays to motorists but every effort will be made to keep inconvenience to a minimum.
In addition, the junction of Halliwell Road and Moss Bank Way will be closed over the weekend of July 28 and 29.
During the following weekend, August 4 and 5, the junction of Halliwell Road and Blackburn Road will be closed.
Motorists will not be able to enter or leave Halliwell Road at these junctions during the closures, but all other junctions will be open and diversions will be in place.
Bolton Council’s Executive Cabinet Member for Environment , Regulatory Services and Skills, Councillor Nick Peel, said: “Halliwell Road is a very well-used route into and out of Bolton town centre and we appreciate that this work will have an effect on motorists and residents.
“However, because the route is so popular, its condition has deteriorated and the resurfacing work is an essential short term inconvenience in return for longer term improvement.
“With that in mind, we would ask that drivers are patient and considerate to local residents while the work is carried out.”
Motorists, residents and businesses are asked to be patient while the work is underway. For more information, contact the Bolton Council customer helpline on 01204 336677.
