Town Lane resurfacing: All you need to know
Diversions will be in place to ensure visitors to Southport Hospital are unaffected by the temporary closure of Town Lane next month.
A small stretch of Town Lane will be closed to traffic between Scarisbrick New Road and Folkestone Road from March 4 to March 15 between 6.30pm and 1am for essential carriageway resurfacing works.
Access for emergency services will be maintained throughout the works.
Cllr John Fairclough, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Locality Services, said: “In order to safely carry out carriageway resurfacing, it will be necessary to close a small stretch of Town Lane between Kew Roundabout and Folkestone Road.
“Diversions have been put in place to make sure disruption to staff and visitors to Southport Hospital is kept to a minimum.
“These works were agreed in principle last year and we’re delighted that we can carry out this work to help ensure Sefton continues to be a borough on the move.”
Signage will be in place to divert motorists via Town Lane, Southbank Road, Scarisbrick New Road and vice versa.
