Roadworks bulletin

Road closures → Elliot Street, Tyldesley and Bridgeman Terrace

Elliot Street - Due to an unsafe structure, parts of Elliott Street along with Stanley Street & Chapel Street Tyldesley are currently closed. Local bus routes and guided bus way will be affected and a diversion route will be in place.

Bridgeman Terrace - Due to a void appearing in the carriageway after a repair to a collapsed sewer, Bridgeman Terrace (from the junction of Mesnes Street to Swinley Road), will be closed and a signed diversion will be in place. Pedestrian access is still available.

The aim of this bulletin is to give the public advance notice of roadworks in the Wigan Council area. The council recognises that roadworks can cause inconvenience and it is hoped that this information helps to minimise delays and other problems associated with the works.

This bulletin is updated weekly and every effort has been made to provide accurate and up-to-date information, but it is not intended to be a definitive list and cannot cater for works carried out at short notice. The council also reserves the right to make changes to the programme if emergencies arise.

For any emergency work that has a major impact on the road network, we aim to notify members of the public via Wigan Council's social media pages as soon as possible.

Please see useful links below that allow residents to forward plan their journeys in and out of the Wigan borough.
