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.
Local media are reporting this morning that work is starting today.
Construction of the Broughton Bypass began in January 2016 and is due for completion in August 2017.
Lancashire motorists have been warned that completion of the long awaited Broughton by-pass will be delayed until early 2018. Lancashire Evening Post
