Residents of Pan will be unable to gain access to their homes via Furrlongs, as closures are put in place to accommodate works for the St George’s Way improvement scheme.

It’s part of the latest phase of the 6-month-long works to extend the road and include a third lane to help improve traffic flow and prevent bottlenecks from occurring. The extended lanes will shorten queuing times, allowing more traffic to exit at Coppins Bridge during each cycle of the lights and at the Matalan roundabout, meaning less congestion.

An existing closure means motorists can currently only head towards Shide from Coppins Bridge, with one lane currently closed. This closure will now be extended to the junction between St George’s Way and Furrlongs.

Drivers will be diverted around Coppins Bridge and via Staplers to gain access to Pan and Furrlongs. The closure, which will come into force on 6th April, will last for 10 days until 16th April.
