Junction Improvements

We are improving the junctions in our borough to improve capacity and safety for pedestrians and cyclists.

Section 106 Schemes

The Major Projects Team have received Section 106 funding to create safer junctions for all users, improve traffic flow and encourage more active travel.

Below is a list of schemes the team will be developing throughout the year. This page will be updated regularly as more information and plans become available to share.

Red Rock Canal Bridge signals

Red Rock Canal Bridge signals

Proposed improvements for the Canal Bridge at Red Rock include upgrading the traffic signals with the latest technology. These smart signals are equipped with sensors to monitor traffic flows, and sequence lights to maximise efficiency, reducing delays and accidents.

We are continuing to work with Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) in relation to the scheme and once the necessary approvals are gained, construction works will be phased to minimise disruption on the Standish road network.

Mosley Common Road Junction Improvements

Wigan Council will be delivering a new left turn lane at the junction of A580 Mosley Common Road, to assist with traffic flow and reduce congestion as part of our key route network.

Salford Council have also recently constructed a complementary scheme on other arms of this junction, including new crossing points which provides safety benefits  for pedestrians negotiating across the junction.

Further development and preparatory work is currently being undertaken on site in order to mobilise and construct Wigan’s section of upgrade at this junction, with further detail and key dates to follow.
