Utilities work will take place overnight from January 20 at the junction of Derwent Drive and Broadway. Access will be available at all times.


Work is expected to last for a week

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
