Statement about disruption caused by roadworks in Bacup

Published July 10, 2018 at 16:02

Councillor Alyson Barnes, Leader of Rossendale Council, said:

It is disappointing that drivers have suffered such delays and disruption, and we will be raising the issue with Lancashire County Council.

These roadworks are a necessary part of our £2 million Townscape Heritage Initiative to improve Bacup town centre for residents, businesses and visitors. Changes to the road layout are the final piece of the project and will make the town centre better for pedestrians and cyclists.

Some disruption is to be expected but we are a working borough; people still have to get to and from work during these roadworks so these problems must be resolved as soon as possible.
