Motorists who use the A580 (East Lancs Road) and A570 (Rainford By Pass) are being warned to expect likely delays over the next couple of weekends (11-12 and 18-19 November, 2017), as Scottish Power carry out cable diversion work.
As a result, from 7:00am on Saturday 11 November to 7:00pm on Sunday 12 November 2017, the A580 (East Lancs Road) will be closed westbound from Windle Island to Houghtons Lane. However diversions will be in place and a series of traffic management measures will be installed on the A580 and A570.
The following weekend from 7:00am on Saturday 18 November to 7:00pm on Sunday 19 November, 2017, the A580 (East Lancs Road) will be closed eastbound from Windle Island to City Road. Again, diversions will be in place and a series of traffic management measures will be installed on the A580 and A570.
All properties and businesses will remain accessible during these works.
The work is part of the Windle Island Junction Improvement Scheme; a major improvement programme which will see improved safety, smoother traffic flow, and better access in and out of St Helens, implemented at Windle Island.
It was approved by the Liverpool City Region (LCR) Combined Authority following a successful business case submission to address key issues in St Helens, and to support economic growth in the wider City Region.
The whole scheme is expected to be completed by early 2019.
