Where was the project located?

Works took place on the A585 between the junctions of West Drive and Bourne Way, just to the south of Fleetwood.

Why was the scheme needed?

The scheme is aimed at improving access from the trunk road network to the former industrial site to the east near Thornton, easing traffic flows on residental roads whilst improving safety and providing additional capacity on the A585.

What work was carried out?

The West Drive crossroads has been remodelled with improved traffic islands and pedestrian crossing facilities and traffic signal control has been introduced at the Bourne Way T-junction.  In addition the A585 link between the junctions has been widened to provide two lanes in both directions.

How did this benefit road users?

This scheme aims to boost the economy and improve safety.
