WORK to rectify a fault at the new A59 roundabout near Clitheroe is set to start next week.

The work to amend a fault on the roundabout's surfacing is set to begin on Saturday, May 18 from 7am and is due to finish at around 6pm.

Work to complete anti-skid surfacing and paint road markings will begin on Friday, June 7, from 7pm to 6am on Monday, June 10.

The current traffic management, including the 30mph speed limit on the roundabout approach, will stay in place until the work is completed.

During this work the section of the A59 from the Whalley Road roundabout to the turn off to Pimlico Link Road will be fully closed with a diversion in place.

Access to Pendleton will be maintained throughout via the Whalley Road roundabout.

A Lancashire County Council spokesman said the surfacing work can be carried out in most weather conditions, however work may have to be rescheduled if the weather is very bad.

The roundabout scheme is being funded by Taylor Wimpey as part of planning permission for its nearby housing site with access off Pendle Road.
