Resurfacing parts of the northbound carriageway in a month-long project which started on September 13. Due to recent spells of extremely wet weather the project has now been extended until the end of this weekend with overnight – 9pm to 5am - closures of the northbound carriageway between junction 34 and 35 tonight (Friday), tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday nights (October 18, 19 and 20).

Narrow lanes and a 50mph speed limit are in place along a short stretch of the motorway where a new junction (junction 2) is being constructed as part of Lancashire County Council’s Preston Western Distributor road project.
A585 Norcross junction
The £5m project to transform the junction serving the A585 and Fleetwood Road South and Norcross Lane local roads is underway. As part of the second phase of the main construction works the northern section of Fleetwood Road South – i.e. north of the roundabout – will be closed from Monday, October 21 until Friday, December 13. The diversion route for this closure will operate via the A585 up to and along Victoria Road East.
