A section of the A6 will be closed overnight for construction work on the Broughton Bypass on Friday 16 June, Saturday 17 June and Monday 19 June.

The temporary closure by Hochtief takes place between 8pm and 5am for resurfacing on the A6 roundabout, as part of the latest stage of work on the new road.

The overnight closure will involve a section to the north of Broughton village, where the new bypass will meet the A6.

A signed diversionary route will be in operation. People are asked to consider using alternative routes, where possible.

The official non-motorway diversion will be the B5269 Whittingham Lane through Elswick to the A585 Fleetwood Road, then north before turning onto A586 Garstang Road and re-joining the A6 north of Catterall.

Emergency services and bus companies have been made aware of the closure.
