A £7.3 million project to resurface St Peter’s Way will start on Monday, July 4.

The work will be carried out overnight for the next three months and will require overnight closures in both directions.

The whole length of St Peter’s Way, from the Kearsley roundabout to Topp Way, will be fully resurfaced.

St Peter’s Way will close daily, from 7pm until 6am, from July 4 to September 30.

Alternative routes will be signposted and the road will remain open at all other times.

A reduced speed limit of 30mph will be in place during the daytime in areas where work is underway and there is a temporary road surface.

Bolton Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways, Cllr Elaine Sherrington, said: “In an effort to minimise disruption we have planned the work to be carried out overnight, when traffic flows are at their lowest.

“However, we know that the resurfacing will cause disruption and we’d like to apologise in advance for this.

“We also want motorists to take care when driving on the temporary road surface and be aware of the reduced speed limit.

“When the work is complete, it will mean that a key route in and out Bolton will be in a good condition for years to come.”

The scheme is being funded from a £5.8 million government grant, which was awarded to the council after a successful bid. The council will also invest £1.5 million into the project.
