Junction resurfacing starts Sunday 

town hall

The junction of Blackhorse Street and Deansgate will be resurfaced, starting on July 1.

Some preparatory work has already taken place to the key town centre junction. And it will now be resurfaced as part of Bolton Council’s on-going investment in the town centre.

In an effort to keep disruption to a minimum, the resurfacing has been scheduled to take place on three Sundays: July 1, July 8, and July 15.

For work to take place safely, road closures will be in place between 7.30am and 6pm.

Deansgate will be closed in one direction from Howell Croft North to its junction with Moor Lane and Marsden Road. It will remain open to motorists travelling from Moor Lane or Marsden Road on to Deansgate.

Vehicles will not be able to access Blackhorse Street, via its junction with Deansgate.

Diversions will be sign posted. Bus passengers are advised to check with bus companies before travelling because some stops on Black Horse Street will be affected by the closures.

A final phase of resurfacing will then take place in September.

The work is part of Bolton Council’s town centre transport strategy and maintenance programme.

Businesses and motorists are asked to be patient while the work is underway. Contact Bolton Council’s helpline for further information.
