Broughton village improvements

One of the conditions of planning permission for the Broughton Bypass was to make improvements in Broughton along the A6 to reflect the reduction in traffic levels and encourage through-traffic to use the bypass rather than go through the village.

Broughton village improvements are about to start

The plans include the removal of traffic signals at Broughton crossroads, along with the creation of narrower roads, larger footways, courtesy crossings, sections of dedicated cycle track, and tree planting.

This improvement work is possible due to an estimated reduction in traffic through Broughton of up to 90%, now the bypass is open. 

Now that the new road has opened, work can begin on the improvements along the A6 through Broughton village.

New speed and weight limits

New 20mph speed limits and weight limits have been introduced though the centre of the village. The improvement work, which started in August 2018, will introduce other complementary measures such as narrower roads and new grass verges.
