New A585 bypass to close for resurfacing

Essential resurfacing work on part of the A585 Windy Harbour to Skippool bypass will be carried out this week.

To safely carry out the work, the bypass will be closed overnight between Windy Harbour and Poulton junctions on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Highways bosses say they will be reducing disruption by doing the work at night when traffic levels are lower. In addition, they will only close one carriageway at a time.

A signposted, but lengthy diversion will be in operation.

Closure information and diversion

  • Tuesday 23 April – Windy Harbour junction to Poulton junction closed westbound, 11pm to 5am
  • Wednesday 24 April – Poulton junction to Windy Harbour junction closed eastbound, 12am to 5am
