Roadwork's Bulletin

Thanks to Wigan Council for the weekly road works bulletin. Please note No.12 Poolstock Lane.

Prepared 24 March 2017 - Issue 897

The aim of this bulletin is to give the public advance notice of roadworks in the Wigan Council area.

The council recognises that roadworks can cause inconvenience and it is hoped that this information helps to minimise delays and other problems associated with the works. Every effort has been made to provide accurate and the most up-to-date information available but it is not intended to be a definitive list and cannot cater for works carried out at short notice. The council also reserves the right to make changes to the programme if emergencies arise.
