A6 Broughton Bypass 28 May 2017

Construction of a new bypass to the east of the village of Broughton on the A6, running from the roundabout at M55 junction 1 to a point on the A6 north of the village.

The southern half of the bypass, from the M55 to the B5269, will be dual two-lanes. The northern section from the B5269 to the A6 will be a single carriageway with one lane each way.

A59 Penwortham Bypass Completion 10 February 2017

Construction of a new dual two-lane road to complete the Penwortham Bypass, running from the Broad Oak Roundabout on the A582, which forms the southern end of the part of the Bypass that already exists, and turning west to run directly to a new roundabout on the A59 south west of Howick Cross Lane.

The Broad Oak Roundabout would be signalised as part of these works.

Preston Western Distributor Road 4 November 2016

A new dual two-lane route linking the A583 and A584 west of Preston to a new junction on the M55. The route will include two intermediate roundabout junctions and will involve building a new interchange on the M55.

The M55 does not have a junction 2 because at the time the motorway was built a western bypass of Preston, to be part of the motorway network, was proposed. The western bypass motorway was never built but this scheme is a smaller scale attempt to provide a similar road.
