6 months of road works to be­gin at junc­tion

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

DE­LAYS are ex­pected as six months of road­works on a busy junc­tion near the M60 be­gin next week.

From Mon­day, work will take place on Wors­ley Round­abouts in Sal­ford.

Work will be done to im­prove the two round­abouts to lessen the im­pact on traf­fic flow dur­ing the rush-hour pe­riod.

Sal­ford coun­cil say that the work be­ing done should re­duce the jour­ney time by 10 per cent with other lo­cal traf­fic see­ing a ‘big­ger jour­ney time sav­ing.’ Work will take place at night.

Ma­jor work will be done to resur­face the two round­abouts and solve the on­go­ing drainage is­sues at the Wors­ley Court­house round­about.

An ad­di­tional lane ap­proach­ing the round­about will also be added, clearer road mark­ings and im­prove­ments to pave­ments and cy­cle lanes will also be made.

The roads most af­fected in the area will be Wors­ley Road, Bar­ton Road and Leigh Road.

The im­prove­ments works are on the round­abouts at the mo­tor­way junc­tion, and not for the M60 it­self.
