Improving access and public space
Good transport links are important to economic growth and creating new and improved roads and other transport infrastructure will be essential to the growth of the City Deal area.
New roads will improve connections across Lancashire, with links to the motorway network and improved access to Preston city centre, Leyland town centre and local district centres, as well as providing access to housing and employment areas. By relieving congestion and expanding our road network to help future growth, we will be able to attract more investment and business to the area.
At the same time, we will be making many improvements to local town and village centres to further improve the quality of life for the people who live or want to move to the area. Improvements will include enhancing public space with new paving materials, lighting and landscaping, and supporting public transport, walking and cycling.
