View the latest road works happening across the borough:
Campus Oldham - highway improvement works
King St / George St / Union St /Union Street West / Barn Street/ St Domingo St / Manchester St /Middleton Road / Rochdale Road
The main scope of the works is to provide a shared cycle/footway and upgrade five signalised junctions to include toucan crossings and introduce one independent toucan crossing along the King Street corridor.
The works will create improved cycle and pedestrian infrastructure leading to the town centre retail and educational facilities. Attractive new surfaces and materials will be used to improve the overall appearance of the area.
King Street will be reduced to a single lane in each direction to provide widened shared footways.
The work will start mid-July 2016 with an expected duration of up to 20 weeks.
Access for vehicles and pedestrians along the route will be maintained during the construction phase with occasional localised diversions and temporary traffic management put in place for health and safety purposes.
