Service diversion work to start

Service diversions taking place from next week will help prepare the land at the Enterprise Zone for the new access road.

Work to divert some utilities will begin on Monday 20 November, starting near the Multi-Ply site before moving to various areas of the business park over the next three weeks. The works are not being conducted by Blackpool Council, but are necessary for the creation of the new access road.

During the time, a series of temporary traffic lights will be needed to ensure safe working practices.
