Blackpool Council has updated its programme of improvement works for Bispham Village which will mean that there will be no road closures on Thursday 14 February.
Resurfacing work that was planned to take place on All Hallows Road will now be undertaken on Friday 15 and Tuesday 19 February.
Cllr Amy Cross, Ingthorpe Ward Councillor, said: “We have consulted with many businesses in the area and listened to their views about the improvement works timetable and its possible impact on Valentine’s Day.
“With a project of this size of around £500,000 of investment there may be some disruption at times. Access to the main car park on Thursday would have always been available via Red Bank Road. However, we want to support local businesses as much as we can. Our highways team have looked to see how we might keep the roads open to help traders and I am delighted to say that the planned works on All Hallows Road will now be delayed.
“In addition, our information team will be in Bispham Village to talk about the improvement works and answer questions on Wednesday 13 February. The information trailer will be on Red Bank Road next to the car park between 11am-3pm.”
