Ribble Valley drivers warned of bridge works

Lancashire Telegraph: The bridge at Langho The bridge at Langho

ROADS are to be closed to allow for repairs to a Ribble Valley bridge on a busy route.

A section of Whalley New Road near the bridge in Langho will be closed overnight for the next four weekends so that engineers can carry out minor work and repainting.

Temporary traffic lights have already been put in place to control traffic and a diversion will also be in place while the part of the road is shut.

The closures will be in place from midnight until 5am on Saturdays and Sundays over the next month.

Travelling towards Langho from Wilpshire, motorists will be diverted onto Ribchester Road, before travelling through Clayton-le-Dale and Salesbury.

That road will lead onto Longsight Road before joining back up with Whalley Road.

The same route in reverse will apply for travelling in the opposite direction.

A spokesman for Network Rail, which is carrying out the work, said: “The bridge at Whalley New Road, Langho, is a rail over bridge where we are currently carrying out a programme of minor repairs and repainting.

“This will help to reduce the need for maintenance at the structure over the next 25 years.

“The works form part of a government funded national programme to enhance rail structures within local communities, with the works at Whalley New Road running until March 17.

“During the works there will be temporary traffic control measures in place, with a full road closure over the next four weekends – February 9, February 16, February 23 and March 2, during which time a diversionary route will be in place.

“A letter informing local residents of the works has also been issued in the last few weeks.

Oh dear, the "Sundown Segregation Se"t that populate the Rubble Valley wont like this. Worry not I say! this is "Diversion" and not "Diversity". However the Rubble Valley will be seeing lots of "repairs" over the next few years. These "repairs" will not be for the faint hearted so for those with weak constitutions start packing now because "progress" is hurtling your way! I believe that the Cotswalds are very nice if you can afford it.

Spiteful nonsense. And it's the Cotswolds with an 'o', not an 'a'; at least learn to spell before you spill your bile on these pages.

When will local reporters get their facts right?

The A666 is only called Whalley NEW Road as far as the boundary of Blackburn with Darwen just past the Bull's Head (which is NOT "at Wilpshire" as it procliams on its sign by the way as it is still Blackburn with Darwen at this point).

On entering Lancashire the A666 is becomes simply Whalley Road whilst it goes through Wilpshire and Langho.

The numbering of the houses on the A666 therefore restarts at the "Lancashire border" as Whalley NEW Road changes to Whalley Road.

Not too difficult to comprehend I should have thought.
