Road works on Bradford Road 


Road works planned for busy Farnworth road

A four week road improvement scheme starts on Bradford Road, from Green Lane to Plodder Lane, on Monday, August 5.

The £530,000 works are part of the council’s planned road maintenance works taking place throughout the borough.

During the works one lane will remain open to traffic apart from Sundays (August 11, 18 and September 1) when the road will be closed.

The road is closing on Sundays to allow work to be completed safely on the narrowest sections of road. During this time traffic diversions will be in place along Green Lane, Manchester Road, Gladstone Road, Glynne Street and Plodder Lane.

Residents will be able to access their properties during the works although there may be times when restrictions apply to ensure the safety of pedestrians, road users and workers onsite.

Local residents and businesses have been informed of the plans and emergency services, Transport for Greater Manchester and other partners have been briefed so they can take appropriate action.

Access to the hospital will be maintained at all times during the works and staff, patients and visitors will be able to access it either from Green Lane or Plodder Lane via Redgate Way.

Councillor David Chadwick, Bolton Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways said: “Following a series of very cold winters the condition of the borough’s roads has deteriorated and these works are essential to keep the traffic moving effectively in this area. While every effort has been made to reduce disruption during the works I would like to thank motorists for their patience and apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.”
