Roadworks on Tonge Moor Road due to start 


A seven week road improvement scheme starts on Tonge Moor Road, from Turton Street to Starkie Road, on Monday, September 30.

The £440,000 road improvement scheme is part of the council’s plans for essential road repairs which are taking place across the borough.

The road will remain open during the works but temporary traffic signals will be in operation which may cause delays and road users are advised to consider alternative routes if appropriate.

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

The council would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused to local residents and road users, but every effort will be made to keep this to a minimum.

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.

Councillor Nick Peel, Bolton Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment 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.”
