Lane Closures – A580 East Lancashire Road

Published on: Friday, 18-September-2015

The next phase of the Knowsley Business Park Access and Connectivity Improvements will start on Monday 21 September at the junction of A580 East Lancashire Road with Moorgate Road North and South.

The work involves improvements to the existing road layout to provide a right turn from the A580 onto both Moorgate Road North and Moorgate Road South. This alteration will make it easier for businesses, visitors and other drivers to access the Business Park.

The work at this junction will start on Monday 21 September 2015 and is expected to be complete by Friday 11 December 2015. 

To allow the work to be carried out safely, there will be lane closures and temporary removal of left and right turns through the junction. Diversion routes will be in place and these will be clearly signed.

Details of the temporary turning removals and diversion routes:

  • Monday 21 September 2015 - Sunday 18 October 2015: Drivers will not be able to make a left turn from Moorgate Road South onto the westbound A580 East Lancashire Road. The diversion route will be to cross the junction onto Moorgate Road North, U-turn around the County Road/South Boundary Road roundabout, returning to the junction to make the right turn onto the westbound A580. See plan.
  • Wednesday 30 September 2015 - Friday 9 October 2015: Drivers will not be able to make a left turn from westbound A580 onto Moorgate Road South.  The diversion route will be via Coopers Lane, South Boundary Road and Moorgate Road North.
  • Monday 5 October 2015 - Monday 19 October 2015: Drivers will not be able to make a left turn from Moorgate Road North onto the eastbound A580 East Lancashire Road.  The diversion route will be to cross the junction onto Moorgate Road South, U-turn around the M57 junction 4 roundabout, returning to the junction to make the right turn onto the eastbound A580
  • Monday 12 October 2015 - Friday 16 October 2015: Drivers will not be able to make a left turn from eastbound A580 onto Moorgate Road North.  The diversion route will be via Coopers Lane and South Boundary Road.
    As with all major road works of this nature, it is inevitable that some disruption will be caused. However, this will be kept to an absolute minimum.
