Expect traffic disruption in Blackpool from today

Expect traffic disruption in Blackpool from today due to a number of road closures.

Among them, Yeadon Way is closed to traffic between Ashworth Road and Parkinson Way for the next three weeks.

Meanwhile the promenade is closed until late January at the Talbot Road junction, and there are also week-long temporary lights at Devonshire Road bridge.

A spokesperson for Blackpool Council said: ''We understand the works will cause disruption and appreciate your patience during this time.

''We'll update people regularly on any changes via our social media channels and on our website.

''Temporary roadworks can range from small maintenance work to major road closures and can cause varied levels of disruption. 

''We will always try to minimise any disruption on our roads and thank our local residents for bearing with us while we work to make the roads better for the future.  

''During this time there may be some inconvenience but we are doing our best to make your journeys as hassle-free as possible. Please be aware that diversions are in place and you are advised to follow diversion signs around the town centre.''
