Road improvements in Farnworth 


Work to improve Market Street and Higher Market Street in Farnworth starts today (April 19).

The scheme involves resurfacing the road between the King Street and Bolton Road junctions.

Improvements are expected to take six weeks to complete dependent on weather conditions. The major works have been timed to take place during off-peak hours to keep disruption to a minimum.

Individual bus stops may be closed for short periods as the works progress and temporary traffic signals will be in use. For safety reasons, parking on the road will be restricted at certain times.

Residents and motorists are asked to be patient and to contact the council’s helpline on 01204 336677 for further information.

Local company Bardon Contracting are carrying out the works for the council.
