Knowsley Business Park Transport Improvements - Moorgate Road South, Moorgate Road North & A580 East Lancashire Road, Kirkby

Published on: Tuesday, 15-December-2015

The transport improvement work at Knowsley Business Park is on schedule and progressing well.

The current road works are part of the Knowsley Business Park Access and Connectivity Improvements scheme which will provide clear routes and gateways for vehicles to identify and access the park. There will also be more public transport available and improved walking and cycling access making it easier for people to move around the park, whatever form of transport they use.

The first phases of the work will soon be complete and drivers will notice an improvement to the traffic flow and will benefit from the work carried out.

To allow this work to be completed, there will be the following temporary road closures:

Phase A - Sunday 20 December 2015, 8:30am – 2pm. No left turn from A580 East Lancashire Road (eastbound) onto Moorgate Road North.  Diversion route via A580 East Lancashire Road, Coopers Lane and South Boundary Road.
Phase B - Wednesday 16 December 2015, 9:30am - 3:30pm. No left turn from Moorgate Road North onto A580 East Lancashire Road (eastbound).  Diversion route via Moorgate Road South and around the M57 Junction 4 roundabout.
Phase C - Wednesday 16 December 2015, 9:30am - 3:30pm. No left turn from A580 East Lancashire Road (westbound) onto Moorgate Road South.  Diversion route via Ormskirk Road, Kitling Road and School Lane.
PhaseD - Thursday 17th December 2015, 9:30am - 3:30pm. No left turn from Moorgate Road South onto A580 East Lancashire Road (westbound).  Diversion route via Moorgate Road North and around County Road/South Boundary Road roundabout.

It is of paramount importance that drivers adhere to any temporary traffic management in place, as this is for the safety of both the general public and the workers on site.
