Leyland - Lostock Hall - Lower Penwortham corridor improvements
The Leyland - Lostock Hall - Tardy Gate - Lower Penwortham Corridor has been identified as a priority corridor for improvements to public transport, cycling and walking.
As one of the main routes into Preston City Centre from the south, improving the corridor is a crucial part of the development of sustainable communities across the City Deal area.
Improvements could include more road space and redesigned junctions to benefit buses, cyclists and pedestrians, and public realm improvements – to streets, pedestrian areas and green spaces – where these corridors run through city, town, district and local centres.
The section north of Lostock Lane runs through a number of key junctions, including Lostock Lane and Brownedge Road. Key locations and centres served by this route include Lostock Hall, Tardy Gate and Lower Penwortham.
This corridor will benefit from the delivery of A582 South Ribble Western Distributor, ideas for improvements will be drawn up with local communities and published in an Improvement Plan and works will be timed to start once complementary improvements are delivered elsewhere on the transport network.
