There will be a number of road closures for the Ironman and Ironkids events on August 3 & 4.

Bolton is hosting the cycle and run elements and this will involve the use of roads to the west of Bolton and within the town centre.

One of the main roads to be affected will be Chorley New Road. This will be closed from the A58 junction at Beaumont Road to the junction with St George’s Road and Chorley Old Road.

The 575 and 576 bus services will be diverted on to Chorley Old Road due to the closure.

Passengers who usually get on or off these buses on Chorley New Road, can catch a replacement shuttle bus service between 11am and 11.30pm. Information will be displayed at the bus stops.

The shuttle bus will drop passengers off at specified stops on either side of the road so passengers can connect with their usual bus service.

Full details of all road restrictions can be found at and also printed in the current issue of Bolton Scene, the borough’s newspaper.
