The Eastway Link Road is scheduled to open on the afternoon of Monday 24th of February. However, due to the wet weather, there is a chance that this may not be possible. Lancashire County Council (LCC) will be monitoring the weather to determine if the Give Way lines to the roundabout can be installed, amongst a few other items. If this activity continues to be rained off, the opening will be delayed until such time that they are able to complete these works. Unfortunately, no-one can control the weather!

We are also advised by LCC that there will be a number of outstanding items that the contractor, Story Homes, or Homes England's contractor will carry out after the opening date. This includes some topsoil/seeding and erecting the permanent fencing to the ponds. However, the contractor is completing items now that would otherwise require onerous traffic management once the link road is open.
