A59 Penwortham Bypass Completion

Scheme outline

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.

This is a change to the route that has been protected for a number of years, which would have run further to the south to reach the A59 at Hutton. Lancashire County Council have revised the route to make it shorter, avoid property demolition and make the new road better suited to connecting to a future crossing of the Ribble west of Preston.
