The final stage of work on a major new link road leading to the £100m regeneration scheme at Broadway Green is set to start on January 6.
The new road will give motorists and pedestrians access to the development, which once complete will provide more than 600,000 sq ft of employment space and up to 500 new homes.
This is a major construction project and will include the decommissioning of Crossley Bridge, the old railway bridge located north west of the San Rocco Restaurant, and the construction of a new signalised junction on Broadway.
During this time there will be unavoidable disruption to residents and road users.
Restrictions will be put in place on Broadway, including lane closures (from four to three) and possible overnight closures. This will impact on journey times so plan in advance.
Arrangements for pedestrian access will be made at all times.
The contractors will aim to keep disruption to a minimum and will redirect construction traffic away from existing residential areas where possible.
The expected completion date for the link road is the end of 2020.
Regular updates will be available via the Oldham Council website, our twitter feed @OldhamCouncil and via the website of our JV partners www.foxdentonllp.co.uk

From Sunday 7 June 2020, we envisage moving the Traffic Management over to the other side of Broadway to commence the next phase of the bridge removal. As a result, the pedestrian route along Broadway will switch to the opposite side of the road meaning that the football pitch side will be closed off whilst the works take place.
In addition right turn bans will be introduced for vehicles entering and leaving Derwent Drive and Milton Drive and Fold Green, and that these right turn bans will be in place until the end of September, the right turn bans are for the safety of motorists and are a requirement of the regulatory bodies including the Police Service. Diversions will be signposted.
