Please find below details of closures for Windle Island and Traffic Management plans for the works.
Windle Island road closures
Motorists who use the A580 (East Lancs Road) and A570 (Rainford By Pass) are being warned to expect likely delays at night time on 6th and 7th August 2018. This is to install traffic management and replace the existing traffic signals with temporary signals for the construction works at the junction.
As a result, from 1900pm on Monday 6 August to 06:00am on Tuesday 7 August 2018, the A570 (Rainford Road - Northbound) and the A580 East Lancashire Road - Westbound will be closed.. However diversions will be in place and a series of traffic management measures will be installed on the A580 and A570.
Also, from 1900pm on Tuesday 7 August to 06:00am on Wednesday 8 August 2018, the A570 (Rainford By Pass - Southbound) and the A580 East Lancashire Road - Eastbound will be closed.. However diversions will be in place and a series of traffic management measures will be installed on the A580 and A570.
Once the traffic management has been installed and full construction works start on site, there will be lane closures on all approaches to the junction and will be in place for 40 weeks.
All properties and businesses will remain accessible during these works.
The work is part of the Windle Island Junction Improvement Scheme; a major improvement programme which will see improved safety, smoother traffic flow, and better access in and out of St Helens, implemented at Windle Island.
It was approved by the Liverpool City Region (LCR) Combined Authority following a successful business case submission to address key issues in St Helens, and to support economic growth in the wider City Region.
The whole scheme is expected to be completed by early 2019.
If you have any questions or comments about the scheme please feel free to contact Balfour Beatty Public Liaison Officer on: 07545 053 381 or [email protected]. Alternatively, please feel free to contact St Helens Council on tel: - 01744 676 789 and or email:- [email protected]
